This initiative aims to get more young people into teaching maths and physics. Funded by the DfE, the objective is to encourage exceptional maths and physics students to get into teaching the subjects which they feel passionate about, and to educate and enable future generations of mathematicians, engineers, scientists, innovators and inventors. Following the completion of their undergraduate studies a high proportion of Scholars return to teach in the area that they grew up, and so this is a valuable opportunity to feed a pipeline of exceptional teachers to schools in the region.
This is a highly prestigious scholarship programme, and Future Teaching Scholars (FTS) are working closely with schools across England to recruit young people. You can find out more about Future Teaching Scholars at: www.futureteachingscholars.com.
In addition FTS are currently accepting expressions of interest from schools that have appropriate maths or physics teaching vacancies and are interested in employing a Future Teaching Scholar. Future Teaching Scholars are a special kind of mathematics or physics graduate. They are committed to teaching and knew they wanted to become a teacher before starting their degree in their area of specialism. If you have a physics or mathematics teaching vacancy, please get in touch.
