How much funding will I get?
Fee-paying or salaried?
We offer two training routes: fee-paying or salaried. For fee-paying courses you pay a tuition fee for the year, just like a university degree – you can apply for a student loan to cover this and living costs. Depending on the subject you train in and your degree you could receive a scholarship or bursary of up to £28,000 to meet these costs.
On salaried courses you receive the same pay as a non-qualified teacher during your training - but the numbers of these places are limited.
Fees and funding
The tuition fee for 2018/19 is £9,000. If you need help covering the tuition fee or require a maintenance loan please visit www.gov.uk/student-finance for further information.
You could also qualify for a scholarship or bursary of up to £28,000 dependant on your degree subject and qualification; please see the 2019/20 figures below.
Maths trainees could receive up to £15,000 (after tax) in early-career payments once they are in the profession - £5,000 after three years and an additional £5,000 after five years, with an extra £2,500 in each payment for certain local authorities. See the Gov.uk website for further details.
|Subject||Scholarships||Bursaries for trainees with 1st, 2:1, or 2:2 degree, PhD, or Master's||Early-career payments|
|Maths||£22,000||£20,000||Up to £15,000|
*Trainees must have A Level maths at grade B or above to qualify for the primary maths bursary.
If you train with us on the salaried option you will be paid the minimum salary for a non-qualified teacher.
When to apply for finance
We would strongly recommend that you apply for student finance at an early stage to ensure funding; you do not need a confirmed place on a programme to do this. You can use your first choice of course to submit your application and update this later if you need to.
