Internships 2020

Programme suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions placed on schools.

If you’re a good listener and would like to make a real difference to the lives of young people, we’d like to show you what it’s like to be a teacher of Maths or Physics in a secondary school. We are looking for undergraduates on Maths, Physics or Engineering degree courses (ideally those in their penultimate year) who could come to us for four weeks in the summer. You would receive £1,200 (£300 a week).

  • We can pay you to spend a month with us, learning all about it
  • Spend time in shadowing teaching staff
  • Guided support from an experienced mentor
  • Get an introduction to what teacher training would involve including using data to inform your teaching
  • Gain work experience and a reference from a professional organisation
  • See what one year teacher training options would be available when you graduate; how to apply and how you can fund it with bursaries or even a salary while you train.

This internship programme is coordinated by the New River Teaching School Alliance (NRTA) for schools in North London and by the West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA) for schools in West London. We both deliver outstanding university accredited postgraduate teacher training courses in a partnership of schools – with a view to trainees potentially working in our schools once they qualify.

Our short internship programmes aim to provide a really useful experience of what it is like to work in a school, to prime potential applicants for our courses that start in September every year.

The internship programme is no longer open for applications.
There will be two interview dates available to those shortlisted and these will be held at Alexandra Park School, Rhodes Avenue, Muswell Hill, N22 7UT.
