How does the Future Teaching Scholars programme relate to the PGCE route?
The PGCE and Future Teaching Scholars programme are different routes into teaching, and cannot be taken together. The PGCE is a stand-alone one-year teacher training course, whereas the Future Teaching Scholars programme is a six year programme offering a new route into teaching, supporting students throughout their time at university, during their teacher training, and through the first two years of their first teaching role.
There are many routes into teaching, but the Future Teaching Scholars programme is unrivalled in its level of training, learning, support and financial benefits. As a Future Teaching Scholar you receive a £15k grant, as well as a salary during your initial teacher training year, with a total of 6 years of support and training, access to exclusive events, and help finding your first teaching job.
