The Try Out Teaching Paid Internship Programme

*Please Note : the application window is now open*

Are you approaching your final year at university and thinking about a career in teaching Maths or Physics?  Receive £1200 tax free Bursary for a four week internship based at an outstanding school in North Warwickshire.

Funded by the government, our Try Out Teaching Internship Programme is an exciting new approach to teacher recruitment.  Not only will you receive a tax free Bursary of £300 per week during your internship, you will have the opportunity to work alongside teaching staff and pupils in an outstanding school.  Your internship will put you in the driving seat to make an informed decision as to whether or not teaching is the career for you.

  • You will be provided with a subject buddy and a professional mentor during your time with us. Together you will build a relationship that will transcend the internship experience and will help and support you throughout your time with us.
  • You will have the opportunity to start building up time in a school environment and begin collecting the evidence you will need as you start your teaching career.
  • You will be offered an induction into the school life and be invited to work with your own tutor group, alongside the existing Tutor.

If you decide, that teaching is for you, we will support you along every step of the application process.  You will be in an excellent position to be considered for School Direct vacancies in maths and physics within our partnership of schools.

Internships will normally commence in June, however, we appreciate that interns from different universities will have differing availability, so we are also offering flexible start dates to reflect this.

Here are some quotes from people who took part last year:

“Highlights were teaching and planning my own lessons, meeting the staff and supporting them in the classroom”

“It exceeded my initial expectations, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was immediately welcomed into the department.”

“Seeing behind the scenes of teaching.  I actually taught my own lesson at the end.  Lovely to feel like a member of the department.”
