There are a number of funding options available for teacher training and you could be eligible to receive all of them.
- Bursaries and scholarships: Teacher training offers tax-free bursaries and scholarships of up to £26,000 for trainees who have attained university degrees in certain subjects such as science, languages and computing. This money does not need to be paid back.
- Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans: Tuition Fee Loans are available to pay for your course fees upfront and you will not have to pay this back until you start earning more than £26,575 a year. Maintenance Loans of up to £12,282 are available. All eligible trainees qualify for at least the minimum loan amount for their living costs, regardless of household income. For Hamwic SCITT trainees, this is £3,410 if you are living at home and £4,289 if you have student rental accommodation fees.
- Additional support: Extra financial support is available if you are a parent, have an adult-dependent or a disability.
