How to Apply

Find out how to apply

We have now recruited four cohorts of Scholars that have started their journey to becoming qualified teachers. We are unable to accept further applications at this time.

Applying for the Future Teaching Scholars programme is a two-stage process. Remember that in order to apply for the Future Teaching Scholars programme you must be thinking about studying a maths- or physics-related undergraduate degree at an English university, starting from September 2019. At current there are no further spaces available on the Future Teaching Scholars Programme.

The first stage is to fill in the short registration form.

You'll then need to complete a full online application. If you successfully get through the initial application stage you will be invited to attend an assessment centre at one of our Regional Training Centres.

What is an assessment centre?
An assessment centre is a bit like an extended interview during which you take part in a number of activities that give you chance to show off your skills, interests and potential. During the day you will take part in:

  • an interview – a one-to-one interview that will last around 25 minutes
  • a group task – working in small groups, you will be presented with a task to complete that is related to maths, physics or teaching
  • a teaching activity – you will deliver a 8-minute teaching activity on a maths or physics concept. A list of topics from which to choose will be sent to you when you are invited to attend the assessment centre
  • a self-reflection activity – following your teaching activity you will be given some time to reflect on how it went and to talk about this.

If you are invited to attend the assessment centre you will need to bring proof of ID (passport or UK driving licence).
