If you have a degree in any of the Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM) subjects then there are strong incentives to consider becoming a teacher of Maths in the further education (FE) sector.
Teaching in FE is a unique experience. It can give the teacher a chance to influence the lives of young people far more profoundly than is the case at primary and even secondary school.
As a teacher in an FE environment you will be working with students at a critical stage in their lives. As well as giving them the skills and knowledge they need to progress to degree level study, your own experiences in Higher Education mean that you can become a ‘guide’ to your students as they navigate their way through their A Level studies into their university lives; as a result, many students fondly remember their FE teachers throughout their careers.
And there’s never been a better time to start your training. There are a number of generous bursaries and incentives for high-calibre graduates coming into the FE teaching profession, for details follow this link…
At York College, we have been enabling degree-educated students to become teachers for many years, and this Autumn we will be launching our first programme dedicated to training the best Maths teachers. We will publish details in due course.
If you’re a maths graduate interested in becoming a teacher of maths to students in further education, why not come to an assessment session at York College over the summer? These sessions are a chance for you to learn more about becoming a maths tutor in FE, and offer us a chance to ensure you’re qualified and prepared for your career.
