You are eligible to apply for a Teach Physics internship if you meet the following criteria:
Applicants should be British residents, either UK passport-holders or able to demonstrate permanent residency status or an intention to apply. A student visa is not sufficient. This is because one of the aims of the programme is to address the shortage of physics specialist teachers in the UK so we are looking to provide experience to people who are most likely to remain in this country. Previous successful applicants may make a second application but, in the event of over demand, priority will be given to new candidates of a similar quality. No individual will be awarded more than two internships.
Applications for the 2017 programme are now closed.
Potential applicants can download the 2017 Information Pack for Students here. This gives details about what to expect from the internship, who can apply and how to do it.
This map shows the locations of the schools offering places this year (yellow markers indicate schools that have not yet confirmed and so may be removed).
Potential applicants are advised to take a look at the reflective diaries of some of 2016's interns to get a feel for what it's like. They may also like to read the Teach Physics @ 7 review, published in November 2016.
