New prestigious mathematics scholarship to get top graduates into the classroom

An important and exciting message from David Youdan - Executive Director of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications: 

The IMA has received grant funding from the Teaching Agency to run the Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships for ITT beginning in September 2013.  This scheme is supported by the LMS and the RSS. As part of the agreement we have been asked to promote the scheme to potential applicants as widely as possible.

150 Scholarships are available for excellent students, undertaking secondary maths teacher training in England during the 2013/14 academic year, who we believe have the potential to become inspirational teachers.

Applicants must have, or be expected to achieve, a 1st, 2.1, MSc or PHD in a subject with a strong mathematical content, have an  excellent understanding of maths at school level, and a commitment to education and teaching.  They should also be expected to demonstrate an understanding of the benefits that the study of maths will have for learners’ careers and its major importance to the UK economy. 

If successful, Scholars will be awarded £20,000, join a community of practice, have formal recognition of their abilities and teaching potential, be able to access early career support and benefit from free or reduced cost membership of, and access to selected professional bodies and their events and resources.

Please use your full networks to encourage applicants to come forward.

Thank you.
