National Maths and Physics SCITT

Web design for National Maths and Physics project

Web design was at the top of the agenda for the new National Maths and Physics SCITT in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. The coordinators came to us looking for a brand for the newly created SCITT and a website to help promote their project. The National Maths and Physics SCITT provides high-quality teacher training, led by Mathematics and Physics experts from the best schools in the country. 

The National Maths and Physics SCITT is at the forefront of a new DfE initiative to spearhead subject-specific teacher training on a national basis in shortage subject areas, which aims to buck the trend in declining applications for Teacher Training,

 The National Maths and Physics SCITT, which is led by Wycombe High School in High Wycombe, will recruit its first cohort of Maths and Physics teachers in September 2018, and is already open for applications.

Speaking about their recent DfE designation, Sharon Cromie, Executive Headteacher at Wycombe High School Academies Trust said: “We are delighted to be leading the new National Mathematics and Physics SCITT (NMAPS) to help improve the recruitment and retention of trainee teachers and are particularly pleased to be bringing the state and independent sectors together on this extremely important initiative.”

Sarah Yarwood, Director of NMAPS added: “This new model of recruitment and training offers unprecedented opportunities for our trainee teachers to gain subject-specific training from outstanding practitioners. For example in addition to the NMAPS subject knowledge training programme, our Physics trainees will benefit from being able to access The Institute of Physics Scholars Masterclasses. 

“We have been delighted by the quality of the candidates enquiring about this programme and are excited by the potential they have for making a real and positive impact on young people’s lives.”

The website is live and helping to recruit new candidates for Maths and Physics teacher training.
