Teacher Internship

Internship Programme at Millennium

Schools rely heavily on resumes that illustrate a relevant work history. “But you need the experience to get experience”. This is the biggest challenge facing young student-teachers. A good internship programme can be the difference between winning a job opportunity or losing it.

Objectives for student-interns

  • Opportunity to know yourself
  • Enhance your resume through relevant experiences
  • Get Connected and Develop Your Professional Network

A teacher makes more than 3,000 non-trivial decisions every day. No list can capture the extraordinary subtlety involved in making instant decisions about which student to call on, how to frame an impromptu question, or how to respond to an interruption. We as teachers have to think fast on our feet and do the best we can with the information we have.

Watching a great teacher at the top of his or her form is like watching a great surgical or artistic performance. Although infinitely difficult and painstakingly planned, great teaching appears effortless and seamless.

Through the internship programme at Millennium National School the student teacher builds a repertoire of professional understandings and develops a future oriented attitude to schooling and teaching.

The past few years have witnessed a paradigm shift in the concept of school internship courses in India. The earlier stipulation of practice-teaching involved teaching of a pre-specified number of lessons in the subjects offered by a student-teacher as teaching or methods subjects. The NCTE Regulations, 2009 made an attempt to broaden the scope of practice-teaching by emphasising the importance of providing experience of all activities and programmes of the school to the student-teachers. The 2014 modification has further strengthened internship through the component of ‘Field Engagement’.

“Many of the skills that have helped me in the “real world” didn’t come from what I learned in lectures, but from the internships I pursued while I was a student.”
