It’s almost the end of another year. What will 2016 have in store for you? Have you run out of steam in your chosen career? Are there things you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done yet? Are you still thinking about unfulfilled potential?

If the answer to any of those questions is yes then it might mean it’s time to think again about what you are doing, As a scheme that promotes scholarships for potential Maths teachers we have seen many candidates come to us from successful in banking, accountancy, financial services, the European space agency and plenty of others. You might wonder why anyone would want to stop a successful career and swap to another.

Actually the answer to that question is quite simple. We have discovered that finding a worthwhile vocation has not gone out of fashion.Many people feel inspired to teach as they want to feel they are investing in the future. They often feel students need even ore high caliber teachers with passion and top notch mathematical knowledge.

The need to understand maths is vital to achieve the mass of potential that is out there. We know students have fabulous options but they still need traditional and not so traditional mathematical skills and ways of thinking to grasp their incredible potential. They need you to help them do this.

You may well have been working half a lifetime in a different field but if you can prove your abilities and enthusiasm for mathematics education then we’d like to hear from you.
