PhD graduates to get cash incentives.

University fellows with a PhD in maths or physics are being offered £40,000 a year for two years as teaching trainees. Other postdoctoral teacher trainees start on a minimum salary of £19,000.

The scheme - for non-selective state schools - aims to get more young people to study the subjects for longer.

The "Maths and Physics Chairs" programme will be joint-funded by the government and businesses including Samsung, GlaxoSmithKline, Barclays and BAE Systems.

It forms part of the Researchers in Schools training programme for PhD graduates.
Education minister Elizabeth Truss said too many teenagers thought maths and physics were
"niche subjects", adding: "That couldn't be further from the truth.

Tonmoy Kumar, Manager of the Accounts Department of ABDS and an active school governor comments:
“The DfE said it would make teaching of the subjects more inspirational, practical and cutting-edge, transforming the way the subjects are taught in schools in England and inspiring more pupils to study them.”

As well as teaching at their own school, they will conduct master classes for pupils in networks of schools and set up free online maths and physics resources for schools to use.

They will be expected to establish links between schools, universities and business.

They will also help pupils to get work experience at the businesses that have sponsored them.

If you need any help and advice with Free Schools, Academy Schools or Charities, contact Lavinia Newman or Peter Ham now to discuss how ABDS can help bring their experience to these matters.
