We’ll support you as you discover how to apply them in practice, and encourage you as you learn to plan lessons, deliver classes, assess your students’ performances and provide constructive feedback. Our supportive tutors and subject specialist school mentors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive mathematics teacher with high standards of professionalism, and fulfil the requirements for your recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status.*https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/nov/28/government-falls-short-on-secondary-teacher-recruitment-targets accessed on 24 November 2020
