Bursaries of up to £25,000!
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has recently announced bursaries of up to £25,000 to train to teach Maths and English in further education colleges. Bursary amounts will vary depending on teacher training subject and degree class or highest relevant academic qualification.
Teaching is a prime career choice for high-quality graduates, and we are looking for excellent graduates wanting to train to teach secondary subjects. To encourage the best people to enter the profession, larger financial incentives are offered to trainees with 2:1 and first class degrees.
2017/18 Bursary Table
A Golden Hello is available for new teachers of Maths in the Further Education sector, this is available in the second year of employment.
There are two values to the award:
Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE)
Some people who apply for Initial Teacher Training with the potential to become outstanding maths teachers may not have enough specific subject knowledge to begin a maths initial teacher education (ITE) course.
Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) programmes are pre-ITE programmes designed to help these applicants gain the depth of subject knowledge needed to train to teach their chosen subject.
These arrangements will only apply to the subject of maths, and only for pre service post graduate programmes. They are specifically to support those programmes which enable trainees to teach maths to GCSE and level 3 (equivalent to GCSE A level).
National Scholarship Programme
The National Scholarship Programme (NSP) is a government funded scheme aimed at helping students from disadvantaged backgrounds and lower income households to enter higher education (HE).
Funding is provided by the government and the College. It will apply to students entering HE from autumn 2013.
Currently this is limited to FdA programmes.
Most of our Higher Education teaching programmes (FdA, PGCE, BA) are eligible for funding from Student Loans Company, even if you have already had a loan to support previous study.
