NCTL Funding & Bursary Information
School Direct (Salaried)
You will be employed as an unqualified teacher during your training, but the amount you earn will be dependent on the school you train in and the subject you’re teaching.
You maybe eligible for a training bursary (or, where appropriate, scholarship) and can apply for the same financial support, such as student loans. School Direct courses all result in qualified teacher status (QTS).Remember that generous tax-free bursaries and scholarships of up to £30,000 are available to train to teach some subjects. This may make better financial sense to you than a School Direct (salaried) course, where you’ll be paid and taxed as an unqualified teacher.
