  • £9,000 for home and EU students.

No trainee will need to pay the cost of tuition charges up front. They will only pay once they are in full-time employment and earning above £21,000.

All bursaries are subject to conditions and you are not guaranteed funding, but you may be eligible for financial support.

 

Although the KNSPS programmes offers different specialisms these routes are all considered as General primary courses by the DfE.

 

Bursaries are available for trainees on eligible postgraduate courses in England who are not employed as unqualified teachers on the School Direct (Salaried) route. Bursary amounts will vary depending on teacher training subject and degree class or highest relevant academic qualification.

 

Postgraduate bursaries are paid in instalments throughout the training year. Trainees can choose to spend the bursary as they wish.

 

The table below summarises the standard financial incentives available for KNSPS eligible candidates in 2017-18 and is taken from the DfE site at https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-and-salary/overview

Please note that the TDA commissioned a grade comparison exercise, carried out by UK NARIC, of all international awards that are considered comparable to British Bachelor (honours) degree standard. Applicants with a degree from outside the UK should refer to the equivalency table (PDF, 1MB) to see if their degree is likely to attract a bursary, or should consult their chosen training provider.

 

Bursary payments are processed automatically for eligible candidates by their chosen teacher training provider. You will receive more information on the arrangements and how this is distributed prior to the start of your course. Trainees will receive the bursary in equal monthly instalments for the duration of their course.

 

The potential range of options now available to trainees for ITT makes it important that you are fully informed of the financial support you may be able to access to complete your training. When considering your training options, you may wish to ask your training provider about what bursaries, grants and support are available to you for the choice you are making. Information and advice can also be sought from the Student Loans Company or by contacting the Teaching Line on 0800 389 2500.
