Training Bursaries and Scholarships

Department for Education Financial Incentives for ITT courses starting Sept 2024

You may be eligible for a bursary or scholarship if your teacher training course leads to qualified teacher status (QTS). These are tax-free amounts of money you receive to train in certain subjects. You do not need to pay them back.

The DfE are offering tax-free bursaries of £28,000 in chemistry, computing, mathematics, and physics. Scholarships worth £30,000 tax-free will be offered in partnership with professional bodies for chemistry, computing, mathematics, and physics. A languages scholarship worth £27,000 tax-free will be available in French, German and Spanish.

The DfE are also offering a £25,000 tax-free bursary for biology, design & technology, geography and languages (including ancient languages). £10,000 tax-free bursaries will be available in English, and they are reintroducing £10,000 tax-free bursaries in art & design, music and RE.

Your bursary or scholarship will be paid in a minimum of 10 equal monthly instalments over the duration of your course by your teacher training provider.

If you’re a non-UK citizen without indefinite leave to remain in the UK(opens in new window), you will not usually be eligible for a bursary or scholarship, unless you train to teach languages or physics. Find out more about funding for non-UK citizens.
