Masterclass helpers

Find out how to become a Masterclass helper.


Teacher helpers play a vital role in supporting students in their investigations and learning in order to allow them to benefit fully from the Masterclasses. Helpers need a good level of mathematical or engineering understanding to pick up the topic on the day of the Masterclass and support the students with their activities.

Teachers who attend the Masterclasses as helpers often pick up ideas for activities and topics which they can use in their own lessons.  Many of our helpers are trainee teachers and postgraduate students, who not only develop their teaching skills but also act as role-models for the pupils.

Local groups

Please see the maps of the existing locations of the primary or secondary Mathematics and secondary Engineering Masterclass groups. 

If there are no Masterclasses running locally, do still get in touch as the networks are continually expanding. Alternatively, you could help organise a new Mathematics or Engineering Masterclass series in your area.

Get in touch

If you are interested in becoming a teacher helper, or would like to find out about ways you can support our work, please get in touch with the Masterclass team on or 020 7670 2942.
