A three week paid placement with Chorlton High School is available to STEM and MFL undergraduates who are interested in teaching as a career.

The internship aims to give STEM undergraduates the opportunity to immerse themselves into a secondary school context. The internship covers the pedagogy of teaching Mathematics, Physics, Languages and Computing to ensure interns have a full understanding of common student misconceptions and how to address these. Training also includes effective teaching methods and sharing of best practice examples including; schemes of work, lesson plans and resources. The three-week programme gives interns experience across all aspects of teaching, with the idea that it will help inform their decision on applying for teacher training. 

As part of the placement, interns will have a Subject Mentor who work with and support them daily allowing them to experience:

  • lessons in KS3 and KS4
  • how to work as a Teaching Assistant in the department
  • leading practical aspects of lessons 
  • leading small group invention. 
  • lesson planning

Chorlton High School will also provide training workshops on useful skills including ‘pitch, voice and presence’ and ‘effective questioning’ as well as subject specific training. All interns will also take part in joint planning and delivery of lessons to small groups and entire classes.


Dates: Monday 1st July - Friday 19th July 2024.
