There are several options for you to fund your training, including tuition fees and maintenance loans, bursaries and scholarships. For the most up to date information, visit Get Into Teaching website.
We're here to help you with any questions you may have about the funding process. Don't hesitate to get in touch if there's something you're unsure about.
You can normally apply for Student Finance around March time for the course starting in September, we will communicate this with you once the date is confirmed. If you decide to/ have already accepted your offer from us, we highly recommend that you apply for your Student Finance as soon as possible to ensure everything is in place for the beginning of the course. You can apply for a:
- tuition fee loan of up to £9,250 to cover your teacher training, so you do not need to pay course fees upfront
- maintenance loan of up to £13,022 to help with living costs
Once you have applied through Student Finance, we will then need to confirm your registration on the course. This is done by you signing the unconditional offer letter, issued once you have met any conditions. We will also then need to confirm your attendance on the course, this is done at the end of your first week on placement.
We understand that student finance then takes around 3 to 5 days to process the payments.

Scholarships are available for the following subjects: Chemistry, Computing, Languages, Maths and Physics.

To be eligible for a bursary, you must hold a 2:2 or higher undergraduate degree or a PhD/master's degree, as well as meeting the bursary scheme’s individual terms and conditions. In languages and physics, trainees starting courses in the academic year 2024 to 2025 will not need to be eligible for student finance to be eligible for a bursary or scholarship. In all other subjects, trainees are only eligible for a bursary or scholarship if they are entitled to support under the student finance criteria.
Scholarships are usually available to applicants with a 1st, 2:1, master’s or PhD, though in exceptional circumstances they may be awarded to a graduate with a 2:2 and significant relevant experience.
Scholarships are applied for separately to ITT and only awarded to high calibre students who pass a robust application and interview process in one of the specialist subject areas. Scholarships are awarded instead of a bursary.
Scholarship applicants should apply to the relevant scholarship body. Details are available on Get Into Teaching.

To be eligible for reimbursement you must be employed in a secondary or special school in Bradford.
If you start teacher training or are in years 1 to 5 of your career from September 2019 or September 2020, the Teachers' Student Loan Reimbursement scheme will pay back the student loan repayments via PAYE to the Student Loans Company and teach Languages or Science in a state-funded school in a designated local authority (Bradford is included).
You claim your reimbursement in arrears at the beginning of the academic year.
