Paid internships for teaching
How to apply for funding to provide paid internships for teaching.
Grants are available for school-led partnerships to design and provide paid internships for undergraduate students in their penultimate year at university.
Grant recipients will pilot a scheme for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) undergraduates to increase opportunities for them to experience teaching before they commit to it as a career. Partnerships will also be required to share the learning from the pilots with other schools, universities, and initial teacher training (ITT) providers.
The programme’s aim is to recruit at least 10 STEM undergraduates to secondary mathematics and physics. We encourage smaller School Direct partnerships to work together as a school led partnership to submit a joint bid.
The application round is now closed.
