Additional payments for teaching: eligibility and payment details

We give additional payments to some teachers to encourage them to stay in the profession. Check the rules for who can claim and how payments are made.



These payments aim to increase recruitment and retention of teachers.

You do not need to read this guidance to make a claim. We will work out whether you can get the payment based on the answers you give when claiming.
