Event Encourages Engineers to Teach Physics

The NMAP SCITT (National Maths and Physics School Centred Initial Teacher Training) has been selected to take part in the DfE’s new ‘Engineers Teach Physics’ pilot programme. It is one of just six teacher training providers nationally chosen.

A free online information event has been arranged on Wednesday 25 May from 5.30pm to 6.30pm. It is specifically aimed at people with an engineering background, both new and recent engineering graduates as well as engineering career changers, who are interested in training to teach Physics.

The NMAP SCITT writes: ‘Engineers bring a unique and innovative perspective into the Physics classroom, helping to explain big things to young minds. Your background knowledge will enable you to apply Physics to exciting everyday situations, such as designing formula one cars or suspension bridges. Engineers and Physicists also help find solutions to some of our biggest problems, from climate change to secure energy sources. We need your problem–solving skills and creative thinking to help us survive some of the biggest challenges the education sector has faced.

‘If you would like to find out more about our course, or know anyone who you think might be interested, please join us at this online event to find out more. As well as learning about this exciting new course, you will also hear from engineers who have already trained with us and are now enjoying life as a qualified Physics teacher.’

Please e-mail enquiries@nmapscitt.org.uk to book a place. The NMAP SCITT will send joining instructions for the event.

Bolton School is a Hub School for the NMAP SCITT, which is led by and based at Wycombe High School in Buckinghamshire.
