When you love everything about Maths, you’re already well on your way to becoming an inspiring Maths teacher!
The Red Kite Secondary Maths course will build on your subject knowledge and give you the skills you need to teach Maths at GCSE and A’ Level.
Our specialist Maths teachers have years of experience and strategies to use in the classroom. They’ll work with you to plan your lessons to make sure you’re answering the BIG questions and using key words, so students become familiar with them and what is expected of them in response.
You’ll be able to look for evidence of learning, offer constructive feedback and use questioning for depth of understanding.
Misconceptions and errors can be golden opportunities – learn how to use them to your advantage!
As well as the Red Kite Hub Days, as a Maths Trainee you will also have extra days based at the regional Maths Hub at Harrogate Grammar School.
A tax-free bursary of £26,000 (or £28,000 scholarship) is available for trainee Maths teachers if you have a 1st, 2:1, 2:2, Master’s or PhD. You will also receive early-career payments of £2k each after tax, in your second, third and fourth years of teaching.
100% of Red Kite Secondary Maths trainees have found a teaching role on completing their Maths PGCE course.
“The maths mentors are fantastic! I’ve really enjoyed the various placements in contrasting schools, which have included SEND and behaviour-specific placements. Being in school from day one means trainees can get involved in everything.”
