We’re looking for dedicated, motivated individuals who want to learn and make a difference. We tailor internship programmes as per your interest, availability and the availability of our team. As part of your internship you’ll shadow the relevant teacher/ therapist/ leader. You’ll be a part of planning and execution of student programmes, get to debrief with different therapists, teachers and leaders at our school and participate in professional development opportunities organised for our team during your internship period. You will receive an experience certificate at the end of the internship.

And it doesn’t need to stop here! We’ve had many of our interns continue teaching at our school and take on more responsibilities.
