More than 50 graduates have started new careers in Suffolk schools thanks to an innovative internship programme.In a partnership between Schools’ Choice and Suffolk schools supported by SCC, interns get one academic year of paid experience, teaching and working with children and young people. Around 20 schools will host the interns including primary schools, a pupil referral unit, a special school, academies and Local Authority maintained schools. They will receive development support, the chance to work in specific interest areas, such as special education needs or social work, and help with making career choices or applications for further professional training. A few places are still available on the Graduate Internships in Schools programme. Visit Suffolk Jobs Direct to apply by 25 September.
