Teacher Training - Paying your Tution Fees
Tuition, Bursaries or Scholarship

Trainees who are offered a place on School Direct Training programmes may be eligible to receive bursary payments. The amount 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 and primary. To encourage the best people to enter the profession, larger financial incentives are offered to trainees with 2:1 and first class degrees.

The bursary scheme recognises exceptional achievement outside of degree results and allows flexibility in some cases. In exceptional circumstances trainees may receive a higher bursary than their degree class would otherwise allow. This allows the scheme to take account of, for example, trainees with a 2:2 and a PhD or proven exceptional subject knowledge gained from another career.

You may be eligible for a tax-free bursary depending on your degree classification and the subject that you want to teach. For secondary teacher training, the subjects we are still recruiting for the tuition fee route are:

Tuition fee loan

If you are on a postgraduate ITT course which is not salaried, you will have to pay tuition fees. Bromley Schools Collegiate tuition fee is £9000, this includes the PGCE element of the course (we pay Canterbury Christchurch University) and QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).

School Direct Salaried trainees are employed by the school subject to staff terms and conditions. If you are a graduate with around three years work experience the employment based route could be the course for you, as you will earn a salary during your training year. The course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The training fee will be met by the school. BSC will give you the opportunity to register for the PGCE accredited by Canterbury Christchurch University. The cost will be met by the trainee (currently £1850).
