Teacher training funding
Undergraduates and postgraduates can get help with the costs of their teacher training.
You can get student finance for the following full or part-time teacher training courses:
- initial teacher training (ITT) - including early years
- school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT)
You may be able to get student finance for the following full or part-time teacher training courses:
- ITT - not including early years
- Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE)
You’ll need to apply for undergraduate student finance to get funding for your teacher training.
If you already have qualified teacher status, you cannot get an undergraduate tuition fee loan.
Early years ITT
You cannot apply for student finance if you’re a postgraduate early years ITT trainee. Your fees will be paid by DfE. You may also be eligible for an early years ITT bursary.
You may also be able to get a postgraduate training bursary or an undergraduate training bursary from the Department for Education (DfE).
