How do I know if teaching is really for me?

We are happy to organise school experience days in primary and/or secondary schools to help cement your decision to become a teacher.

How will I afford to fund the SCITT Programme?

Funding is available to help you train to teach. 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 to help with living costs
You can still apply for a tuition fee and a maintenance loan if you already have a student loan, regardless of whether you get a teaching bursary or scholarship.
You will only have to make loan repayments once you're earning. Your repayments will not increase if you already have a student loan and take an additional loan for teacher training.
