DfE ‘Find’ is now live

DfE ‘Find’ is now open and gives full details of our courses and where you can train with us.  You will be able to apply to us from Tuesday 13th October when DfE ‘Apply’ and UCAS open for applications. 

As the application process for teacher training is moving from UCAS across to DfE Apply during the course of this year, you will find many courses listed on both portals. As before, applicants can still only apply to three providers across both application platforms. You will be able to apply to the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT on both websites, but you only need to apply to us once – on one or the other, not both. 

You can find us by searching for the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT, or just with our Provider Code which is 2H8.  

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Applications Open – Our recruitment processes may alter slightly and take a little longer now that schools are closed, but please don’t be put off applying this year, we are still taking applications, conducting interviews and making offers!

School Experience Programme – As schools are now closed, we regret that our School Experience Programme has been cancelled for the foreseeable future.  We will resume visits as soon as we are able.

NMAPS triples its numbers!

We welcomed 40 trainees to our Headington Induction this week and had a fantastic time getting to know one another. Trainees worked hard – the physicists got an introduction to Lab Safety, as well as the work of the IoP, and the mathematicians started unpicking how they will teach the subject they love.

A selection of guest speakers including Barnaby Lenon and Stephen Cook from the University of Buckingham and Behaviour Buddy, Robin Launder all added their voice to the event.  A quiz on the first evening allowed everyone to meet informally and form new friendships. Thank you to Headington School for once again making us so welcome.

Sixth NMAPS Hub opens in North London

The Camden School for Girls and Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School, in Barnet, are to jointly lead the sixth NMAPS Hub.   

“We are particularly delighted to welcome these two leading girls’ state schools to our hub network and to be able to offer subject specialist Maths and Physics teacher training in North London” says Sarah Yarwood, NMAPS SCITT Director. “This new hub will complement our South London Hub, based at Dulwich College as we continue to expand our partnership in England.“

Charterhouse to lead new Guildford Hub

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Charterhouse will be leading our fifth NMAPS hub – the Guildford Hub.  We welcome them to our expanding network of hubs and are delighted that they bring with them a wealth of previous experience training Physics teachers in schools across their local area. They will be working with their existing network of partner schools to offer Maths and Physics Teacher Training in 2019-2020.
