DFE Funding

The Department for education have now announced the financial incentives for ITT courses starting in 2021/22.

They are offering tax-free bursaries of £24,000 in chemistry, computing, mathematics and physics. Scholarships worth £26,000 tax-free will be offered in partnership with professional bodies for chemistry, computing, mathematics and physics.

They are also offering a £10,000 tax-free bursary for languages and classics trainees, and a £7,000 tax-free bursary for biology trainees.

In addition, the funding available has been aligned across all postgraduate routes. This means that schools offering School Direct (salaried) or the Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship routes can access funding equivalent to the bursary amount.
