National SCITT Hubs

We are delighted to be working with The National Mathematics and Physics School Centred Initial Teacher Training programme (NMAPS), a Department of Education (DfE) initiative designed to give Mathematics and Physics trainees the best experience during their Initial Teacher Training.

Trainees will be based in schools with bespoke subject specialist training programmes, delivered by outstanding practitioners and in conjunction with the national subject associations. On successful completion of the programme, trainees will be awarded both QTS and PGCE.

Charles Read Academy will be offering supernumerary training places with NMAPS in Mathematics and Physics for which DfE bursaries are available. We would be delighted to receive applications via the DfE Apply site. For more information please visit

Applications can be made via Apply for teacher training by searching for National Mathematics and Physics SCITT and selecting the East Midlands Hub.
