Do I have to make any commitment to being a teacher?
No. Although we are investing time and money in you, we know that some interns will decide that teaching is not, after all, for them. We will do a review with you at the end of each internship and keep in touch with you throughout the year. If you decide not to continue with the internship just let us know. We won’t ask for our money back!
How many places are there?
We have planned to have 15 interns in the first year. However, we are looking for people who are genuinely interested in becoming a teacher and could take more.
Does it matter which subject I am studying?
Possibly. There are some degree subjects which don’t transfer easily to subjects studied in schools. We will also be particularly keen to get applications from people looking to teach subjects in which it is currently more difficult to find teachers – maths, physics, chemistry, music, geography, languages, computing, DT and English. However, we will need teachers of all subjects.
