Maths Teacher Training Opportunities

Why CHS?


CHS is a member of the NMAPS, National Mathematics and Physics SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) and is one of eight hubs which work with partner schools in their areas to develop high quality classroom-based maths teacher training. It is the only school-centred provider delivering dedicated maths teacher training.

Trainees will spend most of their time at CHS, building their confidence and experience, with weekly academic theory sessions to support their development. They will also work for six weeks in a contrasting second school to broaden their experience. The Kingsway School and Sale Grammar School has agreed to provide complementary placements for our trainees. You can read more about working at CHS here. 

At the end of the one year SCITT programme, trainees will receive Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), including credits towards a Masters qualification.



The NMAPS SCITT currently trains 3% of all Maths and Physics trainees in the UK and this figure is set to grow significantly with more applications through UCAS already this year.

The model for NMAPS, which is centred at Wycombe High School, hopes to have eight centres of excellence around the UK for September 2020, and now includes the new North and South Manchester Hub with Bolton School and CHS in the North West.
