Becoming A Maths Teacher

As a trainee Mathematics teacher, you will be supported by experienced teachers to help inform and engage pupils about Maths, as the tool and language of engineering and science.

To become a maths teacher, you will need to have a passion for all things mathematical and be able to share this passion with young people in an inspirational and engaging way. The teaching you deliver, as part of the course and beyond, will be incredibly influential on each pupil’s future. The best teachers are the ones who strive to help all pupils achieve their full potential.

Once on the course, your Lead Tutor will support you to enhance your subject knowledge further and apply general teaching practices in a mathematics’ classroom, as well as enabling you to understand why and how to teach maths in a secondary school environment.

Constant reflection through the mentor system allows you to assess your strengths and development potential, building progression and confidence in your teaching for a strong foundation to a challenging and rewarding career.

The structure of the course allowed me to build a deep understanding of teaching practice and methodologies before applying these in schools, that were chosen for me specifically, where I could develop and improve as a teacher

— James, Mathematics’ Trainee
