Teaching Internships at St John’s Marlborough: Summer 2020
The Teaching School has been awarded a second year of DfE funding to offer paid teaching internships based at St John’s from 15 June – 10 July 2020. The programme is targeting current undergraduates who are studying Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics based subjects and who are interested in a 4-week internship paying £300 per week. We can also consider applications from other students studying Science or Technology subjects.
Interns will spend four weeks based at St John’s, gaining valuable work experiences including:
- running Research & Development projects
- developing presentation and communication skills
- networking with professionals
- learning about the role of the teacher in a secondary school
We hope that the programme will encourage students to consider Maths & Physics teaching as a career once they graduate.
Emma Hawes, Excalibur Teaching School Director, is heading up the programme. She said:
“We already run a successful School Direct teacher training programme at St John’s, and the internship programme complements this well. Our exciting four-week programme will give undergraduates a taste of life as a secondary school teacher, as well as an opportunity to gain valuable research experience, and we hope that our interns will be inspired to consider teaching as a career option once they graduate.
We have a limited number of places available and are accepting applications now.
