Summer Teaching Internships at St John’s Marlborough


Closing to new applications on 20/05/2022

Excalibur offers paid teaching internships based at St John’s Marlborough, funded by the DfE. The 2022 programme will run for three weeks from 20th June.

The internship programme is aimed at current undergraduates who are studying Science, Computer Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics based subjects and who are interested in an exciting 3-week full-time internship.

DfE funding pays interns £300 per week.

The aim of the programme is to encourage students to consider teaching Maths, Physics or Computer Science as a career once they graduate.

This DfE funded programme has been set up to encourage more people to apply for Teacher Training courses in Maths, Physics and Computer Science. We’ll talk to interns about the opportunities to train as a teacher, and we are keen to recruit STEM degree students who have not yet considered a teaching career.

The internship will provide valuable work experience and skills which are transferable into other careers, enabling students to gain confidence and giving them the edge in the job market. More importantly, the programme offers an unforgettable life experience.

Who can apply?

Priority will be given to students on an undergraduate course that enables them to take a secondary Maths or Physics post-graduate teaching qualification.

Applications from undergraduates in other subjects that might require some Subject Knowledge Enhancement before being accepted onto a Maths or Physics course will also be considered.

Applications will be considered from undergraduates from any year.

We are unable to accept applications from anyone who has already secured a place on a PGCE training course for 2022/23 or from anyone who has previously participated in a DfE-funded Teaching Internship programme.

Emma Hawes, Excalibur Teaching School Director, is heading up the programme. She said:

“We already run a successful School Direct teacher training programme at St John’s, and the internship programme complements this well. Our exciting three-week programme will give undergraduates a taste of life as a secondary school teacher, as well as an opportunity to gain valuable research experience, and we hope that our interns will be inspired to consider teaching as a career option once they graduate.” Click on the flyer to download.
