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’ll get a bursary of £9,000 if you have a degree of 2:2 or above in any subject.

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

You may also be eligible for a loan while you study.
