Internships

As a mathematics undergraduate with a passion for education, I felt that applying to the Beauchamp Teach Teaching Internship would be the ideal platform to explore whether the teaching profession would be a good fit for me. From the in-depth training sessions led by knowledgeable senior members of staff to partaking in lessons across all age ranges and abilities with dedicated support from a subject mentor, the internship more than exceeded my expectations. By the end, I had obtained a firm grounding in the principles of education, pedagogy and more, and have even received some excellent book recommendations on teaching!
