With Carmel Teacher Training Partnership’s Teaching Internships, you will be able to experience the teaching profession, gain new skills and be paid £300/£400* per week for your time. So, if you are a current undergraduate or masters student on a STEM, or MFL related degree and are interested in teaching secondary maths, physics, chemistry, French, Spanish or computing, then the Teaching Internship programme could be for you.

We are one of a small number of schools nationally, approved by the Department for Education, to provide an internship programme for undergraduates currently studying at university.

Interns will be paid £300/£400 per week during the 3-week placement which will be in June/July 2024.

We will provide opportunities to:

  •  Learn about key aspects of the pedagogy of teaching;
  • Gain classroom experience and get involved in lessons;
  • Work with existing experienced teachers;
  • Optional Primary teaching up to 2 days of the internship;
  • Work with a range of students;

Applicants must either be studying a subject with maths, chemistry, computing, physics, French or Spanish content included in it or have a strong A Level in those subjects.

Applicants will be contacted soon after we have received their application and if criteria is met we will invite you for a short teams interview.

Have a look at our videos below and see our last years interns and their recommendations and tips.

* UPDATE: due to minimum wage increase interns 21 and over will now be paid £400 per week (£80 per day/ £1,200 for full 3 weeks)
