Funding and Fees

Fees for ITT programmes are funded in two distinct formats: salaried and unsalaried.


Unsalaried Places

If you have less than 3 years’ work experience you could follow the unsalaried route. In this case you would be funded through a student loan in the same way as for your first degree. A course fee of £9000 is payable to the Higher Education Institution or SCITT. You may be eligible for the standard student support package, including training bursaries, tuition fee loans and scholarships if appropriate. Once you have accepted a place on the Training Programme you can make applications for tuition fee loans, through Student Finance England, to cover the cost of training.

Training Bursaries and Scholarships

Several subjects attract financial support for ITT, especially those which are shortage subjects. Here is  information about the bursaries and scholarships for the 2017/18 entry:



For exceptional trainees we can guarantee a NQT position in one of our Dixons schools foe 2019-20. Only for EBacc subjects English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, MFL and Primary.


If you are a graduate with 3 years’ successful experience in the workplace (not necessarily educational) then you may be eligible for a salaried position. If you were to be successful in securing a place on this programme you would be employed by the school as an unqualified teacher for the duration of the course and the fees for your training would be met by the Teaching Agency.
