Funding information

How does the Funding break down?

The prestigious Future Teaching Scholars programme includes a £15k grant in addition to the extensive professional and personal development experiences and wide-ranging support provided over the six years of the programme.

You will receive your grant in three instalments:

  • £5k at the beginning of your first undergraduate year
  • £5k at the beginning of your second undergraduate year
  • £5k at the beginning of your third undergraduate year

In subsequent years you will be earning as you learn – being paid on the unqualified teacher scale during your Initial Teacher Training (ITT) year. For an indication of the unqualified teacher pay range, take a look at the Get Into Teaching website (opens in a new window). These ranges may be subject to change.

In return you will be expected to:

  • take part fully in the Future Teaching Scholars programme
  • teach for two years in a state-funded secondary school after you complete your ITT
  • be an ambassador for the Future Teaching Scholars programme – and teaching more widely
  • adhere to a code of conduct
  • sign a funding agreement

You should keep in mind that:

  • if you decide not to continue with the programme at any time, the grant may be recovered
  • there are no restrictions on how you spend your grant, but you will need to be able to meet the costs of all aspects of the programme, including taking part in the national and regional events

Applications for the 2017 cohort are now open. Register your interest today.
