1 Week Until the Paid Mathematics and Physics Internship Programme!

Home / News / 1 Week Until the Paid Mathematics and Physics Internship Programme!

As of today, we have officially just one week to go until our Paid Mathematics and Physics Internship Programme begins! 👩‍🏫

Following an unexpected high volume of applications this year, we have successfully recruited 15 interns onto the Internship Programme – 5 more than originally anticipated. As we had received so many brilliant applications, we reached out to King Charles I School in Kidderminster to support us in offering the programme to these 5 individuals.
10 of the Interns will be based at Haybridge High School and Sixth Form in Hagley, with the other 5 attending their Professional Studies days in Hagley, and their observations in Kidderminster. 

We’re really looking forward to meeting all 15 interns in person!

Interns will start their four week programme by attending their induction day training where they will get to meet their cohort, learn about safeguarding and get a tour of the school. They will then spend two days a week learning the theory of teaching and receiving an introduction into training to become a teacher, whilst observing a mixture of Mathematics, Physics and Design Technology lessons for the other three days. 🏫
By the end of the programme, all interns will have a good understanding of whether they would like to become a teacher. It will also be a great experience for them to pick up transferrable skills such as presentation skills, teamwork and hopefully develop confidence in themselves. 👍

Professional Studies and Lesson Observations

At the end of the programme, interns will have attended 8 professional studies days (including 1 induction) where they will learn about:

  • Lesson Planning
  • Planning a Series of Lessons
  • Behaviour Management
  • An Introduction to the Teacher Standards
  • STEM in Primary
  • Differentiation
  • Sixth Form Teaching
  • Pastoral and Administration in a School
  • & More!

They will also have observed observed 12 lesson observation days in Mathematics, Physics and Design Technology Departments.

Teacher Training Progression

Jacq and Toby from our 2019 cohort (pictured below) have since gone on to train to teach with us on our Postgraduate Initial Teacher Training programme; Jacq starts this September and Toby is in the process of completing his training.
🍀 The best of luck to everyone joining us next week!

Hear the stories from the people who chose Haybridge Alliance SCITT

Why should trainee teachers or schools choose Haybridge Teaching Alliance? Hear from real people and their stories on how Haybridge Alliance SCITT have helped them in their teaching career.

Training with Haybridge Alliance SCITT has been life changing. It has given me access to the very best advice, support and teaching practice to enable me to develop as both an individual and a teacher.

During my placements, both of my assigned mentors went above and beyond to make sure that my experience was as beneficial, yet at the same time challenging as possible. The knowledge and expertise shared by both the SCITT staff and the staff within placement schools has been invaluable and has undoubtedly helped me to develop on my journey to becoming a teacher.

English trainee

Love, love, love this course! The support from the SCITT team is incredible, really outstanding. Learning to teach straight away and teaching almost immediately was such a benefit. The students only see you as their teacher and you can take it at your own pace.

I am so happy that I chose to go down the SCITT route as I have loved every minute of it and would recommend it to anyone looking to do a teaching course.

Music Trainee

So far, I have learnt a lot on this programme and I am really enjoying learning how to teach to the best of my ability. The support on the course has been exceptional. I know I can ask for advice on anything in school and I will get good guidance. Completing the Paid Mathematics and Physics Internship was a great experience for me. It gave me a month in the educational environment and really made my mind up that I wanted to go into teaching. Without completing that, I feel I would not have enrolled on this course.

Mathematics Trainee

Everyone has been really supportive, positive and reassuring. It has been good to be back at Haybridge – now as a trainee, rather than a student! The year has been very rewarding and engaging.

It has been full of content with lots of lessons to learn, but also truly inspiring and an excellent platform to start my teaching career. Thank you for all your help.

Primary Trainee

I would recommend Haybridge Alliance SCITT 100% today, tomorrow and forever. This journey into becoming a teacher would not have been a success for me without their dedication. Every push and all feedback that came my way from the SCITT was essential to master the art of teaching. Haybridge Alliance SCITT has provided me with the most exceptional environment, which a trainee teacher needs to exceed.

Computing Trainee

I would highly recommend Haybridge Alliance SCITT as a training provider. The support and encouragement has been immense, in particular from the SCITT team and teaching staff. The subject-specific mentors based at Haybridge have been incredible at imparting their knowledge and providing guidance and I am extremely grateful to them all!

Biology Part Time Trainee

Teacher training is a very rewarding, but at times very difficult journey. The team at Haybridge Alliance SCITT understand that it can be difficult and have been very supportive at the times when the going has been tough and for this I would definitely recommend then. I’m glad I decided to go with Haybridge as I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot more teaching than I would if I’d picked [a university route].

History Trainee

I chose Haybridge Alliance SCITT because I wanted to gain hands-on experience in an outstanding school where I can learn how to teach. The programme is challenging but also very rewarding.

The Monday professional sessions are of high quality and were designed to complement the practical modules. I really feel more confident and passionate about becoming a teacher than ever before. The support of mentors and staff is phenomenal.
