There are 50 places available in this year’s cohort where the interns will gain an insight into the role of teachers with sessions focused on different subjects, and the expectations of children at different key stage levels, while also having the chance to lead lessons.

Emma added: “Interns will engage in a variety of activities to immerse themselves in academy life, getting involved with classroom experiences such as assisting with lessons and providing subject support to students. Additionally, they will have the chance to shadow experienced teachers, observe lessons, collaborate on lesson planning and delivery, receive personalised guidance and network with qualified subject specialists.”

There has already been a good level of interest in the programme so far, with OGAT already having received a high number of applications. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 10 April 2024. The multi-academy trust is also offering a range of virtual events where those who are interested can find out more about the programme and get support with the application process.
