The internships are organized and assigned by the Office of Internships of the Graduate School of Teaching. Internships are usually located in the Central region of the Netherlands.
The Office of Internships strives to take your preferences into account as much as possible. However, the Office of Internships is dependent on the available internships offered by the schools in their network.
Teaching Practice 1a+1b
Students can be placed in a so-called SOOO group (Samen Opleiden, Ontwikkelen en Onderzoeken), which is an agreement between several 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 to these schools. Students in these groups will usually be informed in the summer or before Christmas where they are assigned, so there is enough time to plan an introductory meeting at the internship school. Due to the fact that the number of available internships varies per school subject, it occasionally happens that a student’s assignment is only confirmed at a later stage.
Teaching Practice 2
The PiP2 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 (adding a motivational letter and a resume) to plan an introductory meeting. Admission to the internship partly depends on this meeting.
The Office of Internships strives to complete the assignment well before the start of PiP2, to allow 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 also refer to the internship brochure.
