With TKAT's Teaching Internships, you will be able to experience the teaching profession, gain new skills and be paid £300 per week for your time. So, if you are an undergraduate on a STEM, or MFL related degree and are interested in teaching secondary maths, physics, chemistry, French, Spanish or computing, then the Teaching Internship programme could be for you.

Internships will take place between 26 June to 14 July 2023

We are one of a small number of Trusts nationally, approved by the Department for Education, to provide an internship programme for undergraduates currently studying at university.

Interns will be paid £300 per week during the 3-week placement which will be in June/July 2023.

We will provide opportunities to:

· Learn about key aspects of the pedagogy of teaching;

· Gain classroom experience and get involved in lessons;

· Work with existing experienced teachers;

· Work with a range of students;

Applicants must either be studying a subject with maths, chemistry, computing, physics, French or Spanish content included in it or have a strong A Level in those subjects.

Schools taking part in our partnership will be TKAT Academy schools:

Debden Park High School
Orchards Academy
Swanley, and
Chichester High School

with partner schools,

Brockhill Park Performing Arts College
Hythe and Hillview School for Girls, Tonbridge. 

Interns will also be given ongoing support from the TKAT SCITT team with school visits and support in applying for teacher training. 

All interns will be guaranteed an interview for the TKAT SCITT Programme.

This experience is offered to undergraduates in any year group and our
partnership will be taking up to 10 interns per year across our schools. 

Applicants must be available to attend the programme from mid June.
