Do you know someone in their second year of university studying Maths or Science and interested in a career in teaching?

The Grand Union Training Partnership is offering a four week paid internship this summer starting 24th June and finishing Friday 19th July 2019.

We are working with four  schools: Magdalen College School, Brackley; Sponne School, Towcester; Elizabeth Woodville School, Roade and Deanshanger; Guilsborough School.

Most of the time will be spent in one of the four schools with a mentor, observing and supporting in the classroom. There will be an opportunity to plan small parts of lessons and work independently with small groups of students.

There will be an introduction to teaching and some workshops on practical skills for teachers.


  • Be able to travel to and attend one of the four schools for the full four weeks
  • Write a weekly blog of your activities
  • Be able to travel to Towcester for two sessions one at the beginning of the programme and one at the end.

The Grand Union Training Partnership will then offer support and guidance during your final year of your degree in how to pursue a career in teaching.

A bursary payment of £300 per week is available (to include all expenses).

Completed application forms together with the Disclosure of Criminal Conviction Form and Privacy Notice must be returned to SWAN Teaching School   by Tuesday 7th May 2019. Forms can be emailed to:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
