SCITT/School Direct Training Programme (unsalaried)
Trainees who are on the SCITT or School Direct Training Programme may be eligible for a government bursary. Bursary amounts will vary depending on teaching subject and degree class or highest relevant academic qualification.
To encourage the best people to enter the profession, trainees will need at least a 2:2 to be eligible for a training bursary in eligible subjects. For more information about bursaries, please click on this link https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-and-salary/overview
Trainees may also be eligible to apply for a student/maintenance loan. For further details please click on this link https://www.gov.uk/student-finance
School Direct Salaried Programme
Trainees on the salaried route will be paid on an unqualified teacher pay scale 1 or 2.
The cost of the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) fee is paid by the employing school. The cost for the PGCE with 60 Masters Credits is £2,000 and is paid by the trainee.
Salaried trainees are not eligible for student finance and therefore would need to self-fund their PGCE fee.
