This seminar, hosted by the London Mathematical Society, is bringing together interested parties to discuss possible ways forward to promote mathematics teaching as a profession to join and in which to remain.
The day will be split into two parts. During the morning, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges of teacher recruitment and find out how a number of maths departments have attempted to encourage students to think of mathematics teaching as a career. Simon Singh has agreed to introduce this session. After lunch, discussion, led by Tony Gardiner, will be focused around a document being developed by the LMS education committee on this subject for which input and feedback is sought.
