We are proud to be supporting the Paid Internship scheme for teaching, for those of you who are currently studying a STEM subject, and may be considering a career in teaching. This is in association with the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance.
A high quality work experience opportunity will be provided for 4 weeks during the summer term for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) undergraduates to try teaching before committing to it as a career.
The programming, paid at £300 per week, will offer you the chance to gain a deep experience of teaching in an Oxfordshire school, and will include:
- a combination of teaching, running science projects, offering support for children who are struggling, and helping with experiments
- structured training, shadowing and lesson observation, followed by a chance to jointly plan and deliver lessons
- one-to-one mentors who are good or outstanding classroom teachers in their specialism
- opportunities to network with qualified subject specialists
