Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships

Teaching mathematics in secondary schools is exciting and dynamic. You can make a real difference at every level – even while completing your initial teacher training.

If you’ve got a love of mathematics, a desire to teach and the potential to be an inspirational teacher, then you can apply for a Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship.  You could receive a £26,000 tax-free scholarship to support you while you train.

Closing date for applications currently scheduled for 9am on Monday 24 May 2021.  Please note this is a provisional date and depending on demand may change again at short notice.
