Once you have been admitted to the programme and registered for your Teaching practice course, you will be added to our internship placement tool. In this tool you will be able to fill in your personal details and if necessary, add preferences. Our partner schools have already entered their available internship places in the tool. The internship office of the Graduate School of Teaching will then 'match' students with available internships at partner schools. You will be kept informed of the progress through the tool.
Normally a student who has to complete both the Teaching Practice 1 and Teaching practice 2 internships, completes Teaching practice 2 at a different school than Teaching practice 1. We make an exception for students who are placed at a so-called covenant school (SOOO), or in a special programme which trains students at the schools (MOS).
If you are placed at a SOOO school, you will do Teaching practice 1 and 2 at the same internship school. If you are placed at one of the (currently) three MOS schools, you will do Teaching practice 1 at one MOS school and Teaching practice 2 at one of the other three. Internship supervisors and university teachers work together as a training team that supervises the development and study progress of the students.
When matching an internship and a student, we will take into account as much as possible:
- your travel distance;
- your transport options (do you have a car or public transport (student) subscription at your disposal);
- medical indications and / or personal circumstances (if known);
- your personal preferences.
Because we depend on the offers of our partner schools, it may happen that supply and demand are not (fully) compatible.
