Applications to become teaching fellows open

Tieho Hans, 2017 Numeric Teaching Fellow assists a pupil.

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.
