The internships are organized and assigned by the Office of Internships of the Graduate School of Teaching. The Office of Internships ensures the quality of the internships.
Internships are usually located in the Central region of the Netherlands (Utrecht province). The Office of Internships strives to take into account your preferences in religious and educational identity of the school as much as possible. However, the Office of Internships is dependent on the available internships offered by the schools. Final assignment of the internships will be decided by the Office of Internships and will take place in the first week of the educational programme.
Teaching Practice 1a+1b (GSTPIP1a/GSTPIP1b)
Students can be placed in a so-called SOOO group (Samen Opleiden, Ontwikkelen en Onderzoeken), which is an agreement between six schools for secondary education and the Graduate School of Teaching. The aim of the agreement is to promote the collaboration between the secondary schools and the Graduate School of Teaching. The focus of SOOO groups lies on joint education, school development and conducting research in education.
We prefer to assign as many students as possible from both the minor- and Master’s programmes to these schools. Students in these groups will be informed before the first week of the programme, so there is enough time to plan an introductory meeting at the internship school.
Students who are not assigned to a SOOO school, will be assigned during the first week of the educational programme.
Teaching Practice 2 (starting September 2018)
The internships are organized and assigned by the Office of Internships of the Graduate School of Teaching, in consultation with the subject teaching specialist. Thereafter, students will be informed by email about their internship school. Students are expected to contact the school themselves to plan an introductory meeting. This preferably takes place before the start of the programme, so there will be enough time for preparation.
Students who choose to do the in-service variant of the teaching practice are responsible for finding a suitable job themselves (see above and the internship brochure (pdf, in Dutch).
For more information about the internships we refer to the internship brochure.
