Initial teacher training

Looking to teach? You may be entitled to a bursary of up to £20,000. New schemes are available for graduates, particularly for those interested in teaching English and maths – find out if you’re eligible.

Thinking about teaching in the Further Education sector?

Maths and English are essential qualifications; whatever your profession. The government wants to raise young people’s achievement in English and maths and improve support for students with special educational needs.

Graduates looking to teach can receive between £4,000 and £20,000 towards the cost of appropriate Initial Teacher Training courses, as part of a new government scheme launched to attract high-quality applicants to become maths,English or special educational needs teachers in the FE Sector.

A ‘Golden Hello’ scheme worth up to £10,000 has also been introduced, aimed at retaining existing teachers of maths in the second year of teaching.

The amount of money you’ll receive is based on the subject you wish to teach, the class of your degree, and when you’ll be starting training.

For more information about the bursaries or to find out whether you are eligible visit the FE Advice Site, or for information on teacher training courses available at the college, use our online course search, or download a prospectus.
