Future Teaching Scholars

The Future Teaching Scholars programme is a six-year programme for high-calibre candidates. It offers financial support and extra training while you’re a maths or physics undergraduate, followed by specialist teacher training.

The Future Teaching Scholars programme is a prestigious new route for high-quality A level students with a passion for maths or physics, and an interest in teaching.

In exchange for taking a maths- or physics-related degree, you’ll receive a £15,000 grant and early preparation for teaching while studying for your degree. 

After graduating, you’ll receive bespoke employment-based teacher training – earning a salary while you learn, and working in schools from day one – with additional support for two further years and support finding your first teaching job.

Be part of the Future Teaching Scholars programme in 2017 or 2018 – register your interest today
