Advice from Get Into Teaching


Financial support from the DfE

To be eligible for a bursary, you’ll need to be training in an eligible subject, you’ll need a 2:2 degree or above, in any subject. You do not need to apply for a bursary. If you’re eligible, you’ll automatically start receiving it when you start the course.

You may also be eligible for a student loan. These are normally for undergraduate courses but you can also apply if you do postgraduate teacher training. Find out how much loan you could get using the student finance calculator.

Depending on your immigration status, financial support may not be available. Find out about training to teach if you’re a non-UK citizen.


Our apprenticeship costs £9,000. If you meet the full eligibility criteria, set by the DfE, us and, where relevant, our partnership schools, our apprenticeship can be delivered at no cost to you or your school if your school pays the apprenticeship levy.

If your school doesn’t pay the levy, the government will pay 95% of your fees, with your school contributing just 5%, which is £450.

Additional grant funding may be available for shortage subject apprentices in schools that are part of an ITT partnership. More details can be found on the DfE website.

The optional PGCE is usually self-funded at the cost of £1,200 plus VAT (as applicable).
