Cash incentive to boost teacher numbers

By Wesleyan

A-Level students who excel in maths and physics are to be offered £15,000 towards the cost of going to university, if they agree to become a teacher after graduation.

The move, announced as part of a package of measures, aims to boost the number of maths and physics teachers in schools, allowing undergraduates to get a teaching qualification alongside their degree.

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan says there is a need for excellent teachers in every classroom, to prepare children for life in modern Britain.

As well as attracting more high-quality candidates to teach maths and physics, she claims the initiative will further raise the status of teaching as a rewarding career for students.

Teenagers will be eligible for a bursary to help cover their university costs while they study for a degree in either maths or physics, if they commit to teach for at least three years once they have graduated.
