At GLF Schools, we believe that the best place for trainee teachers to learn how to become excellent classroom practitioners is in a school. We are once again opening our doors and offering undergraduates the opportunity to participate in a three-week, Government funded, paid internship.

This three-week funded programme is designed to support undergraduates interested in teaching. Successful interns will spend time in school in June/July 2024 and be provided with £300 per week. 

Do I meet the criteria?

  • Are you currently a university undergraduate?
  • Are you interested in teaching mathematics, computing, chemistry, MFL or physics?
  • Would you like the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of teaching through a three-week paid school experience?

What will I gain?

 By joining us for this three week paid placement, GLF Schools affords you the opportunity to gain:

  • A deeper understanding of life in school
  • To learn from expert colleagues through a programme of learning, support, and observations
  • To co-plan and deliver lessons or parts of lessons
  • To work one to one with a mentor who is an excellent classroom practitioner in their specialism
  • To network with qualified subject specialists and other colleagues
  • To develop skills to add to your CV
  • Work with the GLF Teacher Training team, part of IFT (Inspiring Future Teachers), who will support your school placement and subsequent applications to train to teach
