Teacher training Bursary 2018-19
Primary education teacher trainees are not eligible for government bursaries for 2018 entry. However, for those applying to join our Primary Maths Specialist courses, a bursary of £6000 is available for anyone with at least grade B in maths A Level or equivalent. You can still apply for the Primary Maths Specialist courses without a Maths A Level, but to be eligible for the bursary, you would need to satisfy the ‘B’ or above grade (or equivalent).
For the latest information on scholarships and bursaries, visit the gov.uk funding guidance page 2018-19.
Essex and Primary Thames SCITT will apply for the teacher training bursary for eligible students automatically.
