Financial Incentives

To encourage the best graduates to train to teach and enter the profession, the Government provides financial incentives to trainees intending to teach particular subjects.  If you gain a place with Educate Teacher Training and meet the eligibility criteria regarding subject to be taught and degree classification, you will begin receiving training bursary payments, in instalments, after the start of your course.  Bursaries are only available for fee paying initial teacher training routes (School Direct fee paying and SCITT).

For more information and current eligibility criteria, please visit the Department for Education website.
