Teaching internships

Applications now closed

Applications for the Teaching Internships Programme in 2022 are now closed. Applications will reopen by early 2023.

If you’re interested in spending some time in a classroom, you can still get school experience.

Get school experience

A teaching internship gives you the opportunity to spend 3 weeks in a school and find out what teaching is really like. You’ll experience being in a classroom, gain new skills, and be paid £300 per week.

Teaching internships usually take place during June and July. Places fill up quickly.

Internship subjects

Teaching internships are only available for certain subjects. In 2022, these included:

  • computing
  • maths
  • physics
  • languages (north-east schools only)

To take part, you’ll need to be studying for a degree related to the subject you want to teach.
