Chartered Mathematics Teacher
The wait is over for mathematics teachers…
…the Chartered Mathematics Teacher Designation is now available!
On behalf of the Chartered Mathematics Teacher Registration Authority, the National Association for Numeracy and Mathematics in Colleges (NANAMIC) is delighted to announce that the Chartered Mathematics Teacher (CMathTeach) designation is now available.
The CMathTeach designation reflects the balance between teaching skills (pedagogy) and mathematics knowledge necessary for a professional teacher to educate and inspire today’s students. It will also identify those at the forefront of their profession and benchmark them at the same level as a Chartered Mathematician, Chartered Engineer, and Chartered Science Teacher etc.
To be eligible to apply for the CMathTeach designation, individuals must;
- Be a member of either NANAMIC or one of the other Organisations involved;
- Demonstrate how they meet the competency based requirements, based on the majority of the Post Threshold Professional Standards for Teachers, for;
Pedagogy – a Masters-level qualification in pedagogy/education (equivalence route available);
Mathematics - an honours degree in which there is a minimum of 50% of the course in mathematics (equivalence route available);
Experience - at least four years experience of teaching mathematics following QTS, QTLS or equivalent, of which at least two are at an appropriate level of responsibility; and,
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) – individuals must make a commitment to a regular programme of CPD throughout their career.
In addition to the above, all applicants must agree to abide by the Institute’s Code of Professional Conduct for Chartered Mathematics Teachers.
There are many excellent mathematics teachers worthy of the CMathTeach designation, who may not have a Masters-level qualification in pedagogy/education and/or a first degree in mathematics. For such individuals equivalence routes are available for these requirements, so please check these before thinking that you do not meet the criteria.
