Insight into Teaching – last chance to apply!

Blogged by Abby Evans on 13/02/2018.

Insight Into Teaching provides you with the opportunity to spend three days in a school with a full programme of lesson observation and perhaps a chance to try out some teaching. If you are thinking about a career in teaching then spending time in school is extremely important, not only to help you to decide whether teaching is for you, but also to enhance your teacher training application – whether you are considering a PGCE, School Direct, Teach First or another route into teaching.

For this term we have placements still available in Oxfordshire state-maintained schools in Modern Foreign Languages, Geography, History and Maths. In Oxford independent schools we have placements available in Maths, Chemistry, Politics and Computing.

Applications are open now and close on Monday of 6th week (19 February) prior to placements taking place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of 9th week of term. Successful applicants are allocated to schools on a first-come, first-served basis. Apply now to maximise your chances of a placement in the subject that you would like.

Placements are available in state and independent schools across Oxford and the surrounding area. We also have links with school across the UK – let us know your preferred location when you apply and we’ll do our best to place you in a school that works for you.

To apply login to CareerConnect, and go to “Internship Office & Skills Programmes”, click “Search and Apply” and select “Insight into Teaching” for the relevant term from the list of programmes.

Any current matriculated student of Oxford University is welcome to apply. If you are a research staff member please contact us to ask about availability.
