Sixth Form Internship Experience

#Inspire #Teach #Excel

Have you ever considered a teaching career? Our internships programme provides opportunities for sixth form students to 'try out' teaching and consider if it might be for you!

What does it involve?

The internship is a five year voluntary programme.

In sixth form, you will take part in workshops and classroom experience, getting insights into the reality of life as a teacher. 

In each year of your degree, you will be invited back to take part in 3-5 days internship in schools, building your understanding of a career in teaching further.

All internship days will be arranged so that they don't impact on your studies, so your A Levels or degree remain your first priority. 

Who is it for?

Anyone in Year 12 or 13 who is interested in finding out more about a teaching career. This is not a commitment to teaching - you just need to be curious and want to explore the professional side of teaching!

What are the benefits?

  • great for UCAS 
  • build your confidence
  • professional work experience
  • excellent experience for your CV
  • better understanding of a teaching career
  • exceptional preparation for teacher training
  • guaranteed interview for teacher training with us at the end of the programme
