Hilton College is currently looking for suitable PGCE candidates for the Internship Programme for 2019.
At the entrance gates to the Hilton College estate, the following words are inscribed:
“Enter these gates with humility, determined to contribute to, and to take advantage of, all that this institution offers, and depart knowing that you are well equipped to forge your future in the world.”
This phrase is particularly apt for the young men who attend the College and also serves as a foundation for the intentions of the yearlong internship programme that we offer. The primary aim of the internship programme at Hilton College is to develop and equip young teachers who will serve as the future of education in South Africa and beyond. The programme is designed to offer each intern a range of opportunities for involvement in a number of facets of the school life, in order to gain valuable experience.
The ideal candidate for this programme should:
Be registering for a PGCE through correspondence in 2019 and be interested in gaining professional experience in the workplace
Be able to offer at least two co-curricular skills, e.g. sports coaching, cultural input such as theatre and performance, debating, music, etc.
Be willing to be positively involved in specific school programmes and projects such as plays, field trips, hikes, sports tours, and outreach activities, where relevant and possible
Have a passion for learning and see themselves working towards a permanent career in teaching
