St George's Academy Teacher TrainingLincolnshire Teaching School Alliance Teacher Training

The Careers and Employability team run the Lincoln Award Teacher Training scheme. There are 2 cohorts throughout the year.  One of the schemes is in partnership with the Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance and another is with the St George’s Academy SCITT Partnership.

We are currently recruiting for both schemes.  Applications for both cohorts are for Primary and Secondary teaching in a variety of disciplines.

This is a unique opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career as a teacher to undertake a 2 week internship.  This can be in either a Primary or a Secondary school and is combined with in-house exclusive training.  This bespoke Lincoln Award will allow you to undertake the training and school experience whilst engaging with the Careers & Employability Team for additional support.  It will offer you a real opportunity to add something distinct to your CV, to set you aside from the competition, to get a flavour of the role of a teacher, whilst also offering you the chance to impress a potential employer.

Here are some key facts about the different schemes to consider before submitting your application/s.  You can apply to both schemes.

*This opportunity is open to students currently in their 2nd or 3rd year of study.  It is also open to Postgraduate students.
