Internships

If you’re a good listener and would like to make a real difference to the lives of young people, we’d like to show you what it’s like to be a teacher of Maths or Physics in a secondary school.  We are looking for second year undergraduates on Maths, Physics or Engineering degree courses who could come to us for 4 weeks in the summer.  You would receive £1,200 (£300 a week). 

  • We can pay you to spend a month with us, learning all about it.
  • Spend time in shadowing teaching staff
  • Guided support from an experienced mentor
  • Get an introduction to what teacher training would involve including using data to inform your teaching
  • Gain work experience and a reference from a professional organisation
  • See what one year teacher training options would be available when you graduate; how to apply and how you can fund it with bursaries or even a salary while you train.

This internship programme is coordinated by the West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA) for schools in West London and by New River Teaching School Alliance (NRTSA) for schools in North London. We both deliver outstanding university accredited postgraduate teacher training courses in a partnership of schools - with a view to trainees potentially working in our schools once they qualify.

Our short internship programmes aim to provide a really useful experience of what its like to work in a school, to prime potential applicants for our courses that start in September every year.

If you would like to apply for an internship at one of our West London Schools, please complete this online WLTSA Internship Application Form. You will be able to tell us which school you would prefer to be based in.  

Before you complete the application, have a look at the list of West London Internship Schools below and also refer to our menu above which includes a map to show the location of all WLTSA schools and a summary decsription of each internship school.
