About the course

Trainees spend 4 days a week in school and 1 day a week at University.

How school placements work

Trainees will be based at their Host School for most of the year, undertaking a second 6 week placement, usually in the Spring Term. Teaching is likely to encompass all age ranges from 11-18.

Financial support

You could be eligible for either:

  • a scholarship of £28,000
  • a bursary of £26,000

To qualify for a scholarship you’ll need a degree of 2:1 or above in Physics or a related subject. For a bursary you’ll need a 2:2 or above in any subject.

You can’t claim both a bursary and a scholarship - you can only claim one.

Find out how to apply for a scholarship. You don’t need to apply for a bursary - if you’re eligible, you’ll automatically start receiving it once you begin your course. Find out how you’ll be paid.
