Funded Teaching Internships

Are you considering a career in secondary teaching?  Are you in your penultimate or final year at university?  If so, we may be able to offer you a funded 4-week teaching internship in one of our partner schools!
The 4 week teaching internship will provide invaluable experience within one of our partner schools, and will give you an insight to your teacher training year and the profession.  You will complete a tailored internship program, including aspects such as ‘a day in the life of…’, gain classroom experience and have the opportunity to lead an initiative.  Upon successful completion of the internship, you will be guaranteed an interview for a position on our ITT program for September 2020, as well as support during this application process.
Successful applicants must be in the penultimate or final year of their degree (subject eligibility applies), not have taken part in this internship before, and hold a Maths and English GCSE at C/4 or above (or equivalent).
If you would like to receive further information please register your interest by emailing:
Once you have registered your interest, a member of the Learners First team will be in touch with further information.
