Are you a physics undergraduate thinking about going into teaching? Applications are now open for the 2020 Ogden Teach Physics programme. The deadline for applications is Monday 3 February.
James Brocklehurst was a Teach Physics intern in 2019. Read more about his experience.
Frances Redihough was a Teach Physics intern in 2016 and is now a qualified teacher. Read what she has to say about the programme.
Entering its tenth 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, give presentations on the varied careers possible with a physics degree, 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.
