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.

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.

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.
