Final call for Teach Physics interns 2021

Published: 8 January 2021

“If you are thinking about teaching, give the internship a try it could be the best four weeks of your life and the best decision you’ve made!”

Entering its eleventh year, Teach Physics provides undergraduates with a funded four- to five-week placement in school science departments, allowing students to gain an intensive experience of teaching physics and of broader school life.

Teach Physics interns are supported and mentored by experienced teachers; they observe and participate in school science lessons and extra-curricular activities. In addition, they plan and deliver their own lessons, and share their experiences of university life. The interns are encouraged to join in with all aspects of teaching, including the development of resources that can be used for science teaching and activities at the school once the placements are over.

Still not sure?

James Brocklehurst was a Teach Physics intern in 2019; Frances Redihough completed her placement in 2016 and is now a qualified teacher – you can read more from them and other interns in our Teach Physics case studies which are available on the case study pages on this website.
