Applications to become maths teaching fellows now open

Tieho Hans, 2017 Numeric Teaching Fellow, assisting Sydney van Heerden. at Rocklands Primary School.

Numeric Teaching Academy (NTA) is currently recruiting for their 2018 intake of teaching fellows. They are looking for young, enthusiastic university graduates with a background in maths and/or science who are interested in becoming maths teachers.

It is a non-profit organisation which provides teaching fellowships for university graduates to train to become maths teachers.

The one-year programme consists of three main components; the post-graduate certification in education (PGCE) through UNISA (distance learning); content, practical and classroom management workshops at the academy; and a teaching internship at one of Numeric’s after-school programmes in Khayelitsha, Mfuleni or Mitchell’s Plain.

Teaching fellowships are fully funded and cover the cost of tuition, textbooks, a laptop, and a monthly living stipend.

It is an intensive, yet rewarding programme in which you will learn much about mathematics, teaching, and yourself.

Students who apply and are accepted join a vibrant and friendly community of people who are passionate about maths education and who believe that education is the most powerful driver of change in society.
