Overseas-Trained Mathematics Teachers

Teaching mathematics in England

Teaching mathematics in England can be an exciting, rewarding experience. There are currently skills shortages in England in several areas of education, including mathematics; good teachers with appropriate skills and experience are welcome. Overseas-trained teachers are a valued part of many schools, colleges and other education providers.

This microsite gives information and guidance for overseas-trained mathematics teachers about teaching mathematics in England: mainly in state-funded schools, but also in the Learning and Skills Sector ((LSS), covering state-funded education programmes for adults, other than those in universities, including the Lifelong Learning Sector (LLS)). Much of the information applies, too, to Wales and Northern Ireland (and some applies also to Scotland), but these jurisdictions have separate education systems, so details need to be checked separately.

We would welcome suggestions for improvement of this site. Please send comments and suggestions to trisha.rogers@ncetm.org.uk. You can also post your thoughts on the related community.

It's great to see that there is so much more support for overseas trained teachers, particularly online. When I first started teaching in London in 1997 as an overseas trained teacher, there was so much to learn ... a new culture, a new educational system and a new curriculum to name a few. This was besides all the everyday jobs that needed to be completed! It's great to see a site that I can drop into when I have a spare moment and not having to be entirely reliant on a course or a meeting with a very busy person at school! Great stuff NCETM!!
