Fees and Funding
All grants and bursaries are subject to conditions and you are not guaranteed funding, but you may be eligible for financial support.
The tuition fees are £9000
Tuition Fee Loan
You may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This is available through Student Finance England. More information on the tuition fee loan can be found on the Directgov website.
You can calculate an estimate of your loan repayments by visiting the Directgov website and selecting 'Teacher' from the list of careers.
Bursaries and Scholarships
Scholarships and bursaries are available to trainee teachers.
Bursaries and scholarships are available to trainees on a fee-based teacher training course in England that leads to the award of qualified teacher status.
Availability is dependent on the highest relevant academic award and the ITT subject. To receive a bursary or scholarship trainees must be entitled to support under the Student Finance England criteria.
Applicants with a degree from outside the UK should refer to the equivalency table to see if their degree is likely to attract a bursary, or should consult their chosen training provider.
Funding guidance for schools and ITT providers for 2020 to 2021 including bursaries, scholarships and salaried route grants can be found on here the Gov.uk website
Secondary mathematics early-career payments
Secondary mathematics trainees will receive 2 additional early-career payments of £5,000 each (£7,500 if teaching in specified areas of England) in their third and fifth year of teaching, if they have taught in a state-funded school in England since completing their teacher training course. These amounts are after tax, so teachers will receive the full amount as stated.
For more information, please read the mathematics early-career payments guidance.
Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE)
Don’t hold back from applying for teacher training due to your subject confidence - you can top up your subject knowledge with an SKE.
SKE courses are available in: biology, chemistry, computing, English, French, geography, German, maths, primary maths, physics or Spanish.
We will work with you to identify your need for an SKE as part of our selection process, usually at interview. If we feel you need to enhance your knowledge, but have potential to be a great teacher, we'll offer you a teacher training place on the condition that you complete an SKE course.
For further details, how to apply and fees and funding please see the TES Institute Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) website.
