(This page refers to 2017 entry)

Teach Manchester is very excited to announce its paid STEM internship programme. The programme is funded by the National College of Teaching and Leadership and builds upon existing collaborative partnerships.


Ten undergraduates wishing to teach either maths or physics  will be carefully selected to undergo a four week internship in Teach Manchester partner schools. The Interns will work with enthusiastic and successful newly and recently qualified teachers, 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 Initial Teacher Education experience in our schools, which is typically only available to trainees from beginning of their first formal placement when the demands of the classroom may already be challenging.   This scheme will enable applicants to secure the classroom experience required to apply for teacher training for 2018 entry.  Interns will be recompensed at the rate of £300 per week (total £1200).


Teach Manchester will guarantee an Initial Teacher Training place interview to all physics/maths interns who successfully complete the internship and have the required academic qualifications for a place for 2018 entry (subject to receiving places from NCTL).


To apply: you will need to:

  • be passionate about teaching maths or physics as a career
  • be in your penultimate undergraduate year (graduation spring/summer 2018); studying a subject that would enable you to teach maths or physics (e.g. maths, physics, engineering, natural sciences).
  • hold GCSE A*-C in maths and English or equivalent
  • consent to a Disclosure and Baring Service Check
  • be available for the full period 12th June – 7th July 2017


Applications are being taken online and will close once all positions are filled. 

An assessment day will take place for shortlisted applicants.
