Some of the world’s most famous mathematicians are women, yet they’re often overlooked in history. By empowering girls from a young age and challenging stereotypes, we can begin to change the way the world views gender equality. Working as a maths teacher is one of the ways you could transform young lives and alter their thinking.
If you’re considering studying for your PGCE, this is a great time to begin your journey. We are offering a 2020 master’s bursary, with up to £3,000 to support your Postgraduate studies. We believe in training teachers who can inspire the next generation. So here’s a look at some of the most famous female mathematicians that will transform the way that women are perceived.

The importance of recruiting more girls
The need for more women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) jobs goes far beyond gender parity. These industries need to recruit more women to make scientific or technological innovations useful and relevant, and more importantly, safe.
More women in STEM will also boost the global economy by closing the gender gap. Statistics from McKinsey Global Institute tell us that increasing the number of women in STEM could add over £9 trillion to the global economy by the year 2025.
