Advice useful for both your applications for a Scholarship and a teacher training place
Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship
“How can I challenge my pupils if I am not prepared to challenge myself….” – Maths Scholar
We are delighted to announce that the Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships will be running for a fourth year for those who commence their initial teacher training in the academic year 2016/17.
Over the years that the scheme has been running, a thriving social media community has developed on Twitter and Facebook. This year there is a website dedicated to the Maths Teacher Training Scholarship Scheme which gives more detail about all the Scheme can offer in addition to £27,500 such as membership of professional bodies; training courses and access to resources.
When you’re ready to apply, complete the Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships online application. Please note that we cannot accept hard copies of the application form. In addition to this, you cannot save an application when you’re part way through its completion.
As a potential Scholar your excellent subject knowledge and first class communication skills will inspire passion and confidence in the next generation. But don’t think you aren’t good enough to apply – many of our Scholars didn’t!
Maths has never been more important to every aspect of modern life. In its recent Vision report the Royal Society concludes “Science and mathematics are central to understanding and interpreting many of the global challenges the world faces…..Being educated to a high standard in mathematics and science is likely to maximise young people’s chances of success, both personally and professionally, in an increasingly competitive society”
