You can apply for a scholarship if you;

  • Have or expect to achieve a First, 2:1 or postgraduate degree (Masters/ PHD) in a subject with a strong mathematical content (if you have a 2:2 you may also be eligible if you bring significant relevant experience), OR
  • Have completed or will complete a Maths Subject Enhancement Course (SKE) prior to September 2014, OR
  • Have a non-mathematical degree with extensive mathematical professional experience
  • Have accepted a place on, or are applying for, unsalaried secondary mathematics initial teacher training in England

This eligibility information has been taken from the Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship leaflet, for further information and to apply please go to the Institute of mathematics & its applications website

Upcoming application deadlines for the scholarships are; 16th June 2014 and 28th July 2014.

You can put in a Scholarship application before or after securing a place on a Teacher Training programme but as Scholarships are limited it is advisable to apply as soon as possible.

You can complete your Initial Teacher Training in Maths through the Peninsula Teaching School’s School Direct programme. The PTS School Direct programme offers you the opportunity to complete your Initial Teacher Training in Cornwall and gain your PGCE on a training programme led by an Outstanding School. Maths places are limited so please have a look through the site or get in touch for more information about the programme and we hope that we will receive an application through UCAS from you soon.
