St Annes


Internship Programme


The St Anne’s Internship Programme offers a school based work experience which involves and prepares a student for teaching within South African schools. There is a partnership between St Anne’s and the student where the College will provide the sound ethos of a good school and the opportunities to understand the workings and mechanics of the school environment, while the student has the opportunity to continue with current studies and to gain valuable work experience within the St Anne’s community.


Interns should be:

  • either a 3rd year student or a student who is at least 20 years of age
  • pursuing or intending to pursue a career in teaching or in a school environment
  • female students who are prepared to live in single accommodation on campus, as they have responsibilities in the boarding houses


    Academic, boarding and general duties will include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • observation and supervision of appointed classes, including some teaching and assistant teaching responsibility. The expectation is for the intern to spend 2 hours a day in the classroom and 1 other general admin responsibility
  • a minimum of 1 hour of co-curricular involvement per week
  • attendance of our weekly College Assembly and chapel services
  • attendance at staff meetings where possible
  • involvement in any other activity that is compulsory for full-time academic staff members.
  • attend a weekly meeting with both Head of Department / subject mentor / Deputy Head / House Mother and Intern Programme Co-ordinator.
  • to do weekly breakfast and supper duty
  • assist in other areas of boarding life should the need arise
  • assist in the house if a housemistress became ill or could not work
  • work in conjunction with the HM on certain evening occasions
  • help with chaperon duties during the week and on Saturdays.
  • be an integral part of the House and attend Interhouse events
  • an intern should see herself, and expect to be seen, as a member of the academic staff. It is crucial, therefore, that her conduct be professional at all times. This includes developing appropriate relationships with girls, upholding the high standards and good name of the school, and observing confidentiality at all times.
  • when not engaged in classroom, administrative activities or House duties, the intern will be expected to work on her assignments.


    Positions are advertised on the College and ISASA websites from around June – August for the following year. Applications for 2019 are now closed.
