Why become a maths teacher?

As a maths teacher, you will play an essential role – teaching young people to appreciate maths and empowering them to use it in their daily lives. Your lessons will make a life-changing impact on your students.

There are generous scholarships and bursaries, up to £26,000, available if you're training to teach maths - you can find out more here.

Training with United Teaching

United Teaching is the initial teacher training scheme for United Learning – a national group of over 80 schools committed to bringing out the best in everyone.

With us, you can train while you teach to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), as well as a PGCE awarded by Goldsmiths, University of London.

Our programme ensures you are supported by mentors and tutors beyond your initial teacher training, putting you on the path to becoming a truly excellent practitioner and leader.

Other benefits of teaching at a United Learning school include:

  • Subject-specific CPD, with guest speakers including Craig Barton (Mr Barton Maths) and Colin Hegarty (Hegarty Maths)
  • Expert support from subject advisors
  • Shared curriculum and resources
  • 3 meeting-free INSET days per year (8 in total)
  • Regular opportunities to network and share ideas across different schools
