Teacher training with the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT (NMAPS) in 2019-2020
Wycombe High School Academies Trust is delighted to be the Lead School of the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT (NMAPS), a DfE initiative designed to give Maths and Physics trainees the best experience during their School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT).

NMAPS is recruiting and training Maths and Physics trainee teachers via a growing network of hubs in England and is currently operating in these hub areas: 

  • High Wycombe Hub - led by Wycombe High School in partnership with Headington School
  • Bolton Hub - led by Bolton School in north-west England
  • Dulwich Hub - led by Dulwich College in south London
  • Guildford Hub - led by Charterhouse in Surrey
  • Warwick Hub - led jointly by King's High and Warwick School

The programme will set the highest standards in specialist teacher training, bringing together the benefits of on-the-job training offered by a traditional SCITT, with the enhanced focus on specialist subject knowledge and pedagogy normally offered by a university-based course.

The initial teacher training will be delivered in partnership with the University of Buckingham and led by specialist Physics and Mathematics practitioners working in a network of some of the best state and independent schools nationally, to ensure the highest quality educational provision.

Each hub will be working with other local schools in their area to provide secondary training places in Mathematics and Physics for the 2019-2020 academic year. Please visit our website for more information about NMAPS and our courses.
