National Mathematics & Physics SCITT (NMAPS)

The National Mathematics & Physics School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme offers physicists –both new graduates and career changers – high-quality, bespoke teacher training.

Why work for us

As we only train physics and mathematics teachers, you will benefit from a specialist course focused on teaching you how to teach your chosen subject (physics or maths). Training is led by experts from some of the best schools nationally, in a unique collaboration between the state and independent sectors. Our expanding network currently offers training in six hubs centred around Bolton, Guildford, High Wycombe/Oxford, North and South London, and Warwick. NMAPS will help successful trainees secure permanent teaching posts.

Training and development

Our School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme offers a high-quality, bespoke route to both QTS and PGCE for physicists. Trainees will spend four days a week training hands-on in school, supported by a mentor. One day a week will be spent with other NMAPS trainees, on a specialist subject knowledge and pedagogy training programme, delivered by experienced, practising teachers. During their ITT year and beyond, trainees will benefit from career and professional association support and an alumni network.

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 trainee teachers who are passionate about their subject and have the desire to share that with young people of all abilities. Applicants should be resilient, articulate and interested in contributing to the wider school community. Applicants may be new graduates or career changers, with a physics or closely related degree (e.g. engineering).
