Teacher Training represents a significant commitment, and the majority of our trainees refrain from employment during their training year. To assist trainees, financial support is offered to cover university fees and living expenses throughout the training period.
All trainees are required to pay course fees, which amount to £9,250 (or £16,800 for International Students), directly to their training provider—in our case, Nottingham Trent University.
For UK citizens, there are four types of available funding:
- A means-tested tuition fee loan covering university tuition fees.
- A means-tested maintenance loan supporting living costs.
- Additional financial support for parents, individuals with disabilities, and veterans of the armed forces.
- Tax-free bursaries or scholarships for specific secondary subjects, provided in installments throughout the year.
In the 2024-25 training year, bursaries and scholarships are accessible for trainees with an honours degree class of 1st, 2:1, or 2:2 (bursaries only), relevant to the subject being taught.
