Uniquely, our Teachers’ Standards Programme includes an 18-day work experience component that enables teachers to gain British experience in their specialist teaching area.

This internship is always negotiated to suit each teacher’s personal situation, but we recommend two to three days a week for half a term.

An Empowering Learning recruitment consultant accompanies each teacher to a placement interview to ensure that specific developmental targets are agreed and recorded with the teacher’s school mentor.

Following the internship teachers will:

  • Feel much more confident
  • Have experience of leading and planning a lesson with a full class
  • Know more about ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and IWB (Interactive White Board) use.
  • Have a UK reference
