Teaching opportunities

SPS is excited to offer a paid, 4-week teaching internship running between 17th June – 12th July for penultimate year students who are interested in inspiring the next generation of Physics students.

What is the opportunity?

We are offering a paid, 4-week teaching internship running from 17th June – 12th July.

We have designed an exciting programme that brings you directly into the classroom to gain first-hand experience of classroom teaching.

You will start off as a teaching assistant, moving to leading study groups and co-teaching lessons alongside experienced teachers.  During the final week we aim to get you teaching whole lessons independently.

If you are in your penultimate year of university studying a STEM based subject, have an A level in maths or physics and are considering teaching you should apply!

How will we prepare you?

You will be assigned an experienced teacher as a mentor that you can observe and work with to develop your understanding of how to design and deliver a lesson.

You will be based in a subject department with access to resources and colleagues to discuss best practice and prepare for your teaching experience.

Each week you will receive training to discuss strategies to help you move forward.
