In October, the Department of Education released their funding guidance for 2020/21 applicants, which has meant some changes for applicants in certain subjects.

Good news for those considering training to teach in Art & Design, as the subject has attracted a bursary for the first time in recent years. Applicants across all routes will now receive £9,000 with an Honours degree (first, 2:1 or 2:2).

Eligible Maths, Languages and Science applicants will receive a total of £26,000 across their training year with an additional £6,000 paid in their early career.

There have been additional changes to other subjects, and applicants are advised to research funding carefully before making an application by visiting the Government’s Get into Teaching website.
