Teacher Internship Programme

  • Internship
  • Apply by 12 October 2020

St Cyprian’s School is on the look out for an aspiring Design Intern in the High School.

Through our SCS Uvule Fund, the school has established an internship programme for talented young people of colour who are passionate about education and who are committed to grow in the profession. Our promise to our students is “we teach not for school, but for life; we train not for time, but for eternity”. We extend this same promise to our aspiring interns.

If you are under 25, currently working towards a content-based undergraduate degree or diploma in the field of Design, or ready to start working on the same, or, in the last stretch of your undergraduate degree with your sights set on your PGCE, we’re excited to hear from you. We offer a maximum four-year onboarding programme – subject to which stage of study you find yourself – which includes:

  • University/Tech fees and books
  • Near-campus communal accommodation
  • Sufficient time to study
  • Mentorship and guidance from experienced teachers
  • An immersive inclusion into all things school

In return, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to gain experience in the following areas (approximately 20 hours per week):

  • A vibrant Design department and classes
  • Assisting with teaching groups and individuals
  • Class teaching modules
  • Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop training
  • Laser cutting
  • Administration associated with a busy Design department

Applications, including a certified copy of your matric certificate, a detailed CV and the names and contact details of two referees, together with a letter of motivation that explains your areas/subjects of interest, should reach Head of Design, Ms Natasha Robertson via email at robertsonn@stcyprians.co.za by Monday, 12 October 2020.

We know the worth of water. Be water wise.
