Our three-week funded internship programme provides invaluable classroom experience and an insight into life as a teacher and the culture of the classroom. You will complete a bespoke programme in the summer term working with experienced teachers and subject experts to make a difference to the lives of young people. During the programme, we will also guide you through the process for teacher training, if you feel a career in teaching is for you.

Successful applicants will be high quality undergraduates from any year in their degree, have not previously completed the funded internship programme and have a GCSE grade C/4 or above in both English and Maths.

If you are thinking about becoming a Chemistry, Computing, Languages, Maths or Physics teacher and would like to find out more about the joy of teaching, receive invaluable application support and funding for three weeks before your summer break, register your interest now!

The Internship will be based at one of our Harris Academies across London and will run from Monday 24th June – Friday 12th July 2024. 

What will you experience? 

You'll get a feel for what life as a teacher is like. Your internship will give you an opportunity to:

  • shadow experienced teachers and observe lessons
  • jointly plan and teach lessons
  • get one-to-one guidance from outstanding classroom teachers and subject specialists
  • see what school life is like for a teacher outside of the classroom

Once you have registered your interest with us, a member of our team will be in touch to discuss your application and next steps.


How will we use your personal information?

The internship you are applying for is part-funded by the Department for Education (DfE).  DfE intends to evaluate the internship and the potential benefits to those who participate in it as well as the wider education sector.  To enable them to do this, we will provide the minimum information necessary to them to carry out their evaluation.

DfE (or a contracted organisation working on its behalf) may also:

Contact you to ask about your experiences of the internship. Please note that, if contacted, you will be under no obligation to take part. If you do, you will not be identified in any results of the evaluation and you can ask not to participate, or change your mind, at any time.

Link information you provide in your application form with other information about you which DfE already holds or to which it is lawfully permitted access.  This is to identify (for example) what kinds of qualifications applicants to this internship go on to achieve, how many go into teaching, and how long they are employed as teachers, without having to contact you repeatedly to ask you to update your information.

Security and confidentiality:

DfE’s use of the information we share with them (or its contracted partner) will have no influence on the outcome of your application or your participation in the training and DfE’s findings will not identify you or any other applicants.

Any personal data shared with DfE will be handled securely and only accessed for the purposes of the evaluation of teacher training, recruitment and retention.

If you have any questions about how DfE will use your information, please contact
