DfE Paid Teaching Internships

Applications are closed for 2024

Please come back in the autumn for 2025 applications

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/£4008 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)
