Our teacher internship is a two year programme that is an alternative route to Qualified Teacher Status.
The training will revolve around the practicalities of working in a school as well as skills such as questioning, planning for differentiation etc. Each intern will have a mentor within their own school, with whom they will meet on a regular basis.
The idea is that the intern will be supernumerary to a teaching assistant workforce, as they will be receiving training and will be moving around classes/groups so as to receive the complete experience. They will be expected to work as a TA to an extent in the first two terms however, with some team teaching/small group teaching in the third term.
The participating school will give the intern a 75% timetable, which should not include Fridays (as that is when they will receive training from the Cambridge Partnership). During the year, as with any other trainee, the intern will need to gain experience in another school. This should mean a swap with an intern from another participating school.
We will provide:
- experience in every age group across the school
- opportunities to work with small groups of children to move their learning on
- opportunities to learn from excellent teachers and support children in lessons
- training in the use of intervention strategies for pupils with special educational needs
- a mentor for you and an individualised programme to meet your need
- involvement in supporting clubs and other activities
- opportunities to link with initial teacher trainees and newly qualified teachers to gain insight into teacher training, plus an overview of routes available
- a thorough induction into school life and networking opportunities with other interns.
We are particularly keen to hear from candidates interested in teaching in a primary school or those interested in teaching Maths, Science or Modern Foreign Languages in a secondary school
