How does the Teacher Internship programme work?
A school/trust/cluster commits to taking on a specific number of interns from September of the application year.
Teach in Cambridgeshire advertise and accept applications for the internship. Candidates that have been shortlisted will be invited to interview where there will be a panel of two Headteachers. Candidates invited for interview will also have to complete a short task with a group of students. The task differs for primary and secondary applicants.
After the interviews have been held, we pair recommended interns with schools that would like an intern.
Participating schools will be expected to provide training for all the interns on the Cambridgeshire programme, on a fortnightly rota basis. The training will revolve around the practicalities of working in a school as well as skills such as questioning, planning for differentiation etc. Each intern will have a mentor within their own school, with whom they will meet on a regular basis.
The rota will be organised by the LA’s Senior Adviser: Curriculum, Teaching & Leadership (acting on behalf of the Cambridgeshire Headteachers’ Staff Recruitment Group) who will also be responsible for monitoring the interns and quality assuring the experience that they receive.
