PE Internship

A PE Internship at Nottingham High School will give you first-class hands-on practical experience and insight into how to develop each student’s interest in sport.

From tentative beginners to national standard competitors, we have it all and can offer you excellent teaching and coaching opportunities in a range of sports.

Coaching primarily students in Year 7 and above, but also possibly bringing out the talents of our youngest infant school pupils, you will have the opportunity to develop your teaching and pastoral skills, with the backing of a leading Sports department and the wider school.

In addition, the school supports partnerships with Loughborough Lightning Netball, Nottingham Hockey Centre and The MCC Foundation.

We are looking for someone who is able to be very flexible in their working hours to meet the curriculum and co-curriculum requirements of our students. With the actual 32 hours per week to be worked over 5 days a week (one day off Monday – Friday) including Saturday fixtures and after school hours coaching sessions, you will gain a full insight into teaching life at a top independent school. The experience gained would strongly support an application for a PGCE or other teaching course.

Already a committed and successful sportsperson in your own right? Aspire to be a teacher or top-flight coach in the future? We want to hear from you!

No standalone CVs or agencies please.

Interviews will take place during the week commencing 29 August 2022.

As a part of the paid internship, we are offering breakfast, lunch and dinner through school catering during term-time, plus food at fixtures on Saturdays + competitive employee benefits.

As internships can attract a lot of interest, individuals are strongly encouraged to send in their application as soon as possible rather than nearer to or on the day of the deadline.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 26 August 2022.

This role constitutes Regulated Activity and an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service disclosure, with a check of the Children’s Barred List, is required for this position in addition to other pre-employment checks.
