You will be offered the chance to take part in a series of masterclasses on Differentiation, Resource Development, Safeguarding and other professional responsibilities of teachers whilst also engaging in discussions with a range of school staff and leaders to explore the various career paths and specialisms which exist in schools at classroom teacher and senior management level.

What’s in the programme?

The programme outline will consist of masterclasses on lesson planning, resource building, differentiation, behaviour management and safeguarding, which include:

  • a combination of teaching, running projects, offering support for students who may require intervention
  • structured training, shadowing and lesson observation followed by a chance to co- plan and deliver lessons
  • access to one-to-one mentors who are good or outstanding classroom teachers in their specialism
  • opportunities to network with qualified subject specialists and local employers
  • the chance to develop resources for our charity school in Kenya to support the professional development of teachers overseas

The design of our programme will also include measures to support and encourage you as an intern to apply for teacher training in the future. This will include;

  • continued contact with our Internship Coordinators
  • support to make an application for ITT (Initial Teacher Training)
  • a Guaranteed Interview Certificate, which guarantees you an interview for any ITT places that YWTT advertise in the future

What do our past interns say?

“My time at Yorkshire Wolds was really valuable to me as I learned so much about how to teach effectively in such a short time. One of the biggest things for me was realising just how much work goes into planning a lesson – there were a lot of techniques that I took for granted when I was a student myself. My internship gave me a new appreciation for my own teachers, as well as for profession as a whole.”

“I just wanted to email and say thank you really, thank you for the opportunity, for your honesty and insights and the great teachers you’ve given us the opportunity to speak to. It has been a great two weeks and has made me even more determined then I already was and excited to start looking for teacher training. Thank you!”

“When I received the email from Mrs Sarah Barley notifying me that I had been accepted onto the internship, I was in two minds about following through with it. The internship was due to commence on 14th June and my final university deadline was on the 11th June. I was unsure whether I wanted to take some time to wind down instead of jumping onto this internship – but within the first two days of week 1 I knew that following through with it was one of the best decisions I have made. I knew it would be a great experience but not for one second did I imagine it to be as useful and valuable as this bespoke programme Sarah and her colleagues delivered. Often at university there would be some classes scheduled where I think – wait was this necessary or useful – but I cannot say this about a single session on this internship. Every session throughout the 4 weeks was extremely useful and valuable – even the assignments that were set! I must add that the feedback on assignments was speedy – considering Sarah was teaching her own classes and in meetings throughout the programme. This bespoke programme allowed to me gain a REAL insight into teaching, where we delved into almost everything involved in being a teacher- not just about teaching a STEM subject. We had masterclasses ranging from how to create and deliver starter and plenary activities to the role of a teacher when teaching students with SEND. We even had masterclasses with employers such as HOTA and Siemens Gamesa, which was interesting as it gave us the opportunity to learn about local employers and how teachers can incorporate this information into their lessons. I really hope this programme continues to be delivered in the future as even though it was virtual – I do not think I would have learnt as much as I did if I was visiting a school for a few weeks. I know the staff worked very hard to allow us to conduct lesson observations over Teams which were incredible. All the teachers were amazing, helpful, approachable and were open to questions at all times. I loved the fact that Sarah scheduled sessions to meet with both the Head of Maths at South Hunsley and the Director of Maths across the trust, as this was a great opportunity to ask questions to experienced teachers in a more informal manner. Whether in a pandemic or not – I would strongly recommend this programme to anyone considering teaching. I came into this programme unsure about whether I wanted to pursue a career in teaching or venture into something else, but I am leaving this programme knowing that teaching is truly the career for me.”

“It has been a great 4 weeks for me, I have gained an understanding of teaching in more depth, the classes and observation sessions were also greatly valuable, offering many new experiences and techniques which I will be able to use not only in teaching. I would really recommend it if anyone is thinking of going into a career of teaching.”

“I really appreciate all the help and guidance I have received from both YWTT and Molescroft Primary and I have enjoyed the past 2 weeks of the internship. I am looking forward to applying for teacher training and hopefully (fingers crossed) a career in teaching! 😊”

“Thank you for this incredible internship! I have thoroughly enjoyed my time and have learnt so much in these past two weeks! Attending these lessons has given me a better idea about the different styles of teaching, and what are some of the challenges teachers face. However, it definitely feels encouraging to know that it’s because teachers like you have made such a positive impact on students’ lives.”

“The only way to describe the experience that was offered to me, is it’s the cherry on top of a cake. I have always known that I wanted to be a biology teacher in a secondary school. This week not only allowed me to deal with different situation, challenges from both children and teachers. The children that went out their way to ask why I wasn’t a teacher? Also, with teachers saying they can’t wait to work with me has really made me more determined to do teaching as a career. Thank you.”

“Honestly the week of placement was brilliant, and I really enjoyed working with people of different ages. These 2 weeks have really clarified that I want to work in a secondary school. I really appreciate all the information about teaching and the opportunity you gave me in 2 weeks. Thank you so much.”

“The YWTT internship has given me a very positive and honest look at the teaching profession. The staff involved were so dedicated to sharing as much information as they could about the role and were really supportive in improving our skills. Staff were happy to answer any question thrown at them, with a balanced, thoughtful response. I loved how varied the masterclasses were, including planning, behaviour management and creating resources. The classes helped me to the put observations into context and make the most of being in a classroom. Lastly, the course is really satisfying in that it gave me the opportunity to make resources for real children, it was lovely hearing about how students did with the work we made.”

“The 3-week Internship Program with YWTT was beyond insightful. I’m very glad to have had the opportunity to observe and learn so much about the teaching profession in such a short but enriching period. The first week’s lessons on teaching were an excellent prelude to the variety in the taught classes I observed within the placement school; both were most enjoyable. From this I have learnt a variety of techniques that I’m sure will be useful in many aspects of life especially should I wish to continue to get my PGCE – to which this internship has given me a greater acumen. Finally, I would like to state how inviting, knowledgeable, and insightful the people I have met during the 3 weeks have been (teachers, staff, students and other interns included) and that I holey believe if you wish to get a better understanding of what teaching entails this internship has and will provide that. Thank you YWTT.”
