Welcome to Future Teaching Scholars

Future Teaching Scholars programme is a new and exciting route into teaching. It's designed for exceptional Maths or Physics students who want to teach.

Scholars continue in-depth study of their subjects via an undergraduate degree whilst also learning about teaching through training sessions, online modules and undertaking practical in-school experiences. Learn more about the Scholar programme

We are currently looking for schools that have appropriate vacancies for Scholars to complete their Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in 2021. If you think that your learners deserve to be taught by passionate subject specialists who have three years experience and are committed to effective teaching and learning, get in touch
