Our Try Out Teaching Internship Programme is now OPEN.
Our paid internships are aimed at people with the potential to teach maths, science, French and Computing. It doesn’t matter if your degree is not in these subjects, but if you have an A Level in them, or if your degree has a significant element of statistics, science, number work or gaming you could be eligible.
This opportunity is funded by the DfE and may not be available every year. For years where it is funded, you will be paid £300 per week during your internship, and 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 may or may not be the career for you. There is no commitment to train to teach following the internship, this is merely an opportunity to try it out for yourself.
- 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 help and support you.
- 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.
"I gained a great understanding of all elements of teaching and why teachers have such a passion for it."

Internships usually take place in the last few weeks of the summer term. For subjects not eligible for the DfE funding, or in years when the funding is not available, this opportunity may be available on application to the CAT Institute.
