Internship Scheme

First day for our trainee teachers at The Appleton School

 

THE BTSA PAID STEM INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME 2021 FOR MATHS OR PHYSICS UNDERGRADUATES

 

The BTSA is delighted to be able to offer Maths or Physics undergraduates the opportunity to participate in a four-week paid internship based at a school in Essex during June/July 2021

As part of a government drive to attract undergraduates in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths), the BTSA has received funding to support a 4-week paid internship programme to provide undergraduates with the opportunity to experience school life and the classroom environment.  The STEM internship programme aims to help undergraduates decide if teaching is for them and to support them in making a future ITT (initial teacher training) application. 

 

Internship Progamme 

Over the course of a 4-week programme, successful applicants will take part in a number of activities to give them an idea of different aspects of the teaching role within a school:

 

  • complete a research project on teaching & learning on a chosen focus
  • observe lessons within the department and be given time to reflect on what has been seen
  • be attached to a tutor to understand the pastoral role of a teacher
  • be assigned a mentor throughout the programme
  • track a SEN/EAL student across a day
  • attend staff meetings
  • have time allocated for skills test preparation
  • have time to reflect on the teaching practice they have seen and how it relates to the teacher's standards
  • visit a primary school
  • visit a sixth form
  • aim to teach part or whole of a lesson to a pre-agreed group
  • have the opportunity to work with small groups of students for intervention
  • be involved with extracurricular activities
