Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships
The Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships is back for an eleventh year and there are 270 Maths Scholarships to award to those starting their initial teacher training in 2023/24, who have a passion for mathematics and want to share their knowledge with others – inspiring young minds in the classroom.
A Maths Scholarship also opens up a world of CPD, networking and knowledge sharing opportunities. This includes complimentary membership of key mathematical societies, providing access to a wealth information regarding the latest developments in mathematics and maths education to help inspire and support teachers in their role. Our continuing professional development (CPD) events provide opportunities for Maths Scholars to hear from inspirational speakers, take away resources and talk to experienced maths teachers, developing personal networks which will last a lifetime and give them confidence to progress in their career.
In addition to the above, a Maths Scholar will receive a tax-free bursary of £29,000 during their initial teacher training year.
