The Teaching Apprenticeship is a salaried teacher training route for certain subjects as selected by the DfE. You will receive on-the-job training while you are paid an unqualified teacher salary and your training fees are paid by the school:

Non-salaried teacher training routes

For certain subjects a non-salaried teacher training route could be the preferred option. There are three types of funding available for teacher training – depending on your circumstances, you could receive all three:

•  Tax-free bursary or scholarship

•  Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan

•  Extra financial support if you’re a parent, have an adult dependant or a disability

You will need a first, 2:1, 2:2, PhD or Master’s to be eligible for a bursary or scholarship. An overview of the bursaries and scholarships available can be found in the table below:

Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan

•  A Tuition Fee Loan is available to cover course costs – if you take one out, you don’t have to pay your course costs upfront

•  A Maintenance Loan is available to help with living costs

•  It doesn’t matter if you already have a student loan – you can still apply for both of these loans to support your teacher training

•  You will only start making repayments when you earn over the threshold

•  If you have a student loan already, taking out a further loan for your teacher training will not see your monthly repayments increase
