There are so many reasons to become a maths teacher in the UK. Not only are there job opportunities aplenty, but maths can make a huge impact on young people’s lives and their employability.
There are many maths teacher jobs to consider too, not just teaching in schools. Our PGCE 14+ Mathematics course at the master’s level is designed to prepare you for a range of workplace settings. Here’s a look at some of the math teacher jobs you could get once you graduate.
Teaching in colleges
If you prefer a more informal setting to schools, being a math teacher for college students could be for you. The more relaxed culture makes it easier for teachers to get to know their students. This means you can tailor teaching styles to different abilities and focus on different areas you’re passionate about.
Working with youth offenders
This is a role that offers plenty of job satisfaction. While working with troubled youths can be challenging, the results make it a rewarding and worthwhile venture. By working for prison and probation services, you will help to keep reoffending rates down and you will be giving disadvantaged youths a second chance.
Online math teaching jobs
There are many alternative maths teacher jobs to consider after you complete your PGCE. The adult and community learning sector delivers a range of community-based courses, and some of these may be online. It’s also possible to start a professional tutoring service for students aged 14+.
