Why work for us
The National Mathematics & Physics SCITT (NMAPS) offers physicists high-quality, bespoke teacher training, focussed on subject knowledge and pedagogy. Training is led by experts from some of the best schools nationally, in a unique collaboration between the state and independent sectors. We currently offer training in three areas: North West England, Central England and London. The PGCE is awarded by the University of Buckingham following a distance-learning course. NMAPS will help successful trainees secure permanent teaching posts.
Training and development
This new, School Centred Initial Teacher Training programme offers a bespoke route to both Qualifier Teacher Status and PGCE for physicists. Combining the benefits of on-the-job training offered by a traditional SCITT, with the enhanced focus on specialist subject knowledge and pedagogy normally offered by a university-based course, NMAPS provides high-quality, practical, hands-on teacher training delivered by experienced practising teachers. During their ITT year, NMAPS physics trainees will be able to join the Institute of Physics Scholars’ Masterclasses and once qualified, they will continue to benefit from professional networks, career and professional association support.
What we are looking for
The importance of high-quality maths and physics teaching to the future prospects of pupils cannot be underestimated. We are therefore looking for ambitious trainee teachers who are passionate and enthusiastic about their subject and have the desire to share that with young people of all abilities. Applicants should be resilient, confident, articulate and keen to contribute to the wider school community. Applicants may be new graduates or career changers, with a physics or closely related degree (e.g. engineering).
