Paid STEM Internship Scheme

On Friday 7th July we waved goodbye to our first cohort of STEM interns from Nottingham Trent University & the University of Nottingham, with a celebration of their success hosted by Nottingham Trent University.

Our interns joined us in the Maths & Science departments at the Becket School on a programme designed to give them a 360 degree view of teaching as a career.

Graduation may mark the end of their current placements, but this isn’t goodbye. We will be keeping in touch with our interns and hope to see them at our career and networking opportunities, events and much more.

If you will be a second year undergraduate in 2017-18 and are interested in being part of our Intern programme for 2018 we’d love to hear from you.


We will be recruiting trainee teachers for School Direct at several TeachNotts  events across the region this academic year.

The first of these will be at Nottingham Trent University city campus on Monday 12th September 2016 from 5pm-8pm
