Following recent expansion, the program is now available to Maths, Science and Computer Science teachers from the following countries:







If you teach a different subject, we still welcome you to apply and be part of our external recruitment program. This includes teachers of English, Geography, History and Primary where there is also a need for international talent.

Quantum Scholars have been very efficient and we are very impressed.
