Internships

The Preparatory School aims to develop teachers through an Internship Programme. Our Interns are valued members of the Preparatory School family. Interns, who are supervised by mentors, are involved in all aspects of teaching and learning and administration in the classrooms. They participate fully in the extra-curricular programme while studying towards a qualification in education. We believe their experience at the Prep School will fully prepare them for their careers as teachers.
