There are various funding sources to support you through your training programme. It’s not guaranteed, but there are different options you can check out depending on the route you’ve chosen, the subject you want to teach, and your personal circumstances.
The funding available depends on whether you choose the Fee-Paying or Salaried route for our School Direct courses.
Tax-free funding, in the form of scholarships and bursaries, for the fee-paying route is available in a range of subjects of up to £29,000. The level of funding and eligibility may vary depending on the subject you choose to teach, and your degree classification.
See full details on the government website here.
These are available via the fee-paying route, for all subjects, regardless of your qualifications and the subject you want to teach. It doesn’t matter if you already have a student loan – you can still apply for both these loans to support your teacher training, and you won’t see your monthly payments increase. Plus, you only start making repayments when you earn over the threshold.
You can apply via Student Finance England (SFE) once you’ve accepted your place.
Tuition fee loans:

This is available if you’re on a fee-paying route and if you are a parent, have an adult dependant or a disability. This support does not have to be paid back.

You’ll earn a salary while you train towards your Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) recommendation, and won’t need to pay any tuition fees.
The majority of our trainees come through the fee-paying route; however, when vacancies arise we do advertise them via our website and marketing materials.
