Physics teacher training

If you want to inspire the next generation to be as enthusiastic about physics as you, then why not apply to be a teacher today? 

"Thinking back to when I was at school, physics was always my favourite subject, and I want my students to think the same when they leave my classroom."


Now is a great time to train to teach physics. It’s becoming increasingly popular with students and as one of the core subjects of the curriculum, schools need talented physics teachers. 


You could be entitled to up to £34,000 to teach physics, this includes a tax-free bursary of £26,000 while you train to teach and a further tax-free sum of £6,000 once in teaching. Alternatively, you could be entitled to a prestigious tax-free scholarship of £28,000 as well as the £6,000 in your first teaching year. Find out more information about funding here.

"Fantastic all round training. What has really stood out for me is how supportive the whole SCITT team have been throughout the year. The highlight was my second placement which was excellent and the perfect fit!"
