Scholarships and bursaries
Gifted Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Computing trainees for 2016-17 will benefit from the government's sought after teacher training scholarships schemes which have been running since 2011 in partnership with highly respected bodies:
- The Institute of Physics (IOP)
- The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)
- The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
- BCS, the Chartered Insititute for IT
As well as generous financial benefits, scholars will enjoy a range of perks including free membership to professional bodies, access to resources and events to support them during their training and early career support through their first years of teaching.
Scholarship schemes operate independently and as such each professional body offers a different range of non-financial benefits to successful scholars. To be eligible for a scholarship applicants must have a first or 2:1 degree, a high level of subject knowledge and excellent potential to teach. Applicants must undertake an additional assessment and selection process run by the appropriate organisation. Details can be found on the websites of the relevant organisations.

On the School Direct salaried route (details here), graduates that have been working for around 3 years will earn a salary during their training
