Early years trainees: apprenticeship bursary scheme
This guidance was withdrawn on
This content is no longer current. The apprenticeship bursary scheme was a transitional measure to provide funding for early years trainees until the early years educator qualifications started in September 2014.
To be eligible for the additional £300 training allowance, applicants need to submit a business case to the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). This should identify relevant training to enhance the apprentice’s ability to work in early years.
On request, NCTL will send the business case form to the applicant’s employer.
