Fees And Funding

There has never been a better time to get into teaching, with generous tax-free bursaries available across most subjects, comprehensive training and excellent career progression opportunities.

For Primary and Secondary, our school-centred tuition fees are £9250. Tuition fee and maintenance loans are available through Student Finance England. For specific bursary information please visit the Get into Teaching website.

For Early Years, there are no tuition fees associated with our Early Years Teacher Status course and training opportunity as it is fully funded by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).

Plus there is a financial incentive for employers of £7000 towards employment costs and all tuition fees are paid


Of the subjects offered at the Alliance for Learning SCITT scholarships are available in maths, physics and chemistry. Scholarships are awarded by professional bodies for these subjects, and scholars will be selected through an additional application and assessment process. Each scholarship also comes with a package of non-financial benefits, such as early career support and membership of the appropriate professional body. To apply for a scholarship and for further information, you should visit the appropriate subject association website:

  • Physics – delivered by the Institute of Physics (IOP)
  • Maths – delivered by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society (LMS), the Mathematical Association (MA), Maths in Education and Industry (MEI) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS)
  • Chemistry – delivered by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
  • Geography – delivered by the Royal Geographical Society


All of our secondary subject attracted bursaries. These bursaries are automatically applied to successful candidates, and are available for anyone who is unsuccessful in a scholarship application as well.
