Teacher Training Scholarships renewed for fifth year
“The IMA is delighted by the statement from the Minister announcing that the Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship scheme is continuing into a fifth year. As in previous years, the scheme will encourage applications from anyone with excellent mathematical knowledge combined with the flair and creativity to be an inspirational maths teacher. Our Scholars are an incredible group of people, who are making a real difference to the next generation’s mathematical knowledge. Many of our Scholars were not sure if they should apply, but having done so and being awarded a scholarship they benefitted from not only a tax free payment but also an important range of non-financial benefits including: bespoke CPD events which Scholars can attend during both their ITT and NQT years, membership of professional bodies and membership of a community of equally passionate maths enthusiasts.”
