With Manchester schools struggling to recruit teachers to STEM subject positions and falling numbers of Maths and Physics graduates applying to initial teacher training courses, Teach Manchester is very excited to announce its paid STEM internship programme. The proposed Scheme is funded by the National College of Teaching and Leadership and builds upon existing collaborative partnerships between outstanding STEM-rich universities (University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University) and schools with a track record as engaged strategic partners of the teaching school.

We have a few four week internships available for Maths and Physics in Teach Manchester partner schools.  Internships will commence with induction and training before spending most of their time in partner schools.  The Interns will work with enthusiastic and successful NQTs and RQTs, capturing their inspiration and passion for teaching Maths and Physics. They will also meet STEM graduates who have made good, swift progression in their careers and be supported by trained, experienced, mentors who have the capacity to respond to the individual needs of the interns.

One of the main benefits of the scheme will be the wealth of ITE experience in schools, typically only available to trainees from beginning of their first ITT placement when the demands of the classroom may already be challenging graduates skilled in their subject but lacking emotional skills and resilience to succeed in the classroom.

To be eligible:

  • you must be in your penultimate year of study (2nd year of a 3 year course or 3rd year of a 4 year course).
  • your degree subject must be one from which you would go on to teach Maths or Physics; this would include branches of engineering for example as well as pure subject

Internships commence on Monday 13th June 2016 for 4 weeks.  Interns will be paid £300 per week for the 4-week internship, thanks to funding from the NCTL.  School placements will be in the Manchester area.

We are now recruiting interns so for further information on the scheme please contact Rachel Eppy at or via St Mary’s School on 0161 226 1773 

Applicants are now being assessed on a first come, first served basis.
