Mathematical Sciences Undergraduate study


There is a shortage of maths teachers in this country; the government is keen to attract highly skilled mathematicians into teaching. Being in a position to pass on your passion and knowledge of mathematics is incredibly rewarding. Could you teach the next generation of mathematicians? With the government offering bursaries of up to £20,000 for maths graduates to train, training to be a maths teacher more than competes with other graduate career paths.

Lecturer teaching


All graduates who want to teach will have to complete Initial Teacher Training (ITT), most often in the form of a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), although there are other routes to qualification. A PGCE is a one year course for those who have a degree relevant in the subject they wish to teach; the course focusses primarily on teaching skills and includes placements in local schools.
