David Cameron has stressed the importance of making sure Maths, Science and Computing are taught to a high standard in British schools.
Around 15,000 teachers will be sent back to the classroom for retraining under a £67 million initiative to raise school standards in the subjects.
School leavers will be offered a substantial amount of cash towards university costs in return for becoming a teacher once they graduate in maths or physics.
A national college for digital skills will also be set up in London next year with outposts then expected across the country.
Speaking at a launch event at 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister said the new initiative was "for everyone".
