Teaching internships

If you secure an offer to train to teach with us for September 2022 we hope, where possible, that you will consider one of the roles outlined below to gain valuable experience before your training year.

This can be an excellent way to gain some valuable insight and exposure to a school setting as well as the opportunity to observe classroom practice and potentially gain some classroom experience to support the start of your training year.

Unqualified teacher roles

We have positions across the trust that will provide you with experience in a school as an unqualified teacher whilst receiving a salary.

This is a unique opportunity to become part of our Future Academies family before taking up your place to train and work as a member of teaching staff in one of our schools, delivering lessons as a lead teacher in the classroom.

Positions are available in both our primary and secondary schools and if you are interested in studying in a particular school this may be a useful and finically viable first step into the school community.


Unqualified tutor roles 

There may be further opportunities within our schools to work with small groups of students to support their progress as a Teaching Assistant or equivalent support role. 

If there are no vacancies relevant to your experience please express your interest in a role of this type by contacting us.

Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses

Depth of subject knowledge is explored through our recruitment process from both your application and the interview stage.

It may be that your training offer with us is conditional upon completing a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course prior to the start of your teacher training.

The Department for Education fund some of these courses with no further cost to you.
