Financial support for trainee teachers has never been better!

You could get £30,000 tax-free while you train. Your eligibility for financial support, and the amount you can expect to receive, will depend on the subject you choose to teach and your degree classification or highest relevant academic qualification. If your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, you may be eligible for a funded course to increase your subject knowledge before starting your training.

Training places have tuition fees of £9,250. UK and EU students will normally be eligible to apply for a student loan to pay the cost of the tuition fees which is available through Student Finance England. Student Services at Liverpool John Moores University can assist with this process and provide advice and support throughout applying for a loan.

You don’t need to apply for a bursary – if you are enrolled on a non-salaried postgraduate course and meet the eligibility criteria, you will begin receiving payments automatically by your chosen teacher training provider. You will receive more information on the arrangements and how this is distributed prior to the start of your course.
