Cost of training

If you are on a postgraduate ITT course, you will have to pay tuition fees.

The tuition fees for a one year SCITT course with the 2Schools Consortium will be £9,250.

You may be eligible to receive funding while you train for your SCITT course.

Funding for postgraduate teacher training

Your tuition fees and any other bursary or financial support depend on your status as a home, European Union (EU) or overseas student. Find out more information about EU. All grants and bursaries are subject to conditions and you are not guaranteed funding, but you may be eligible for financial support.

Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This is available through Student Finance England. More information on the tuition fee loan can be found on DirectGov.

You can calculate an estimate of your loan repayments by visiting the DirectGov website and selecting ‘Teacher’ from the list of careers.



The potential range of options now available to trainees for ITT makes it important that you are fully informed of the financial support you may be able to access to complete your training. Information and advice can be sought from the Student Loans Company or by contacting the Teaching Line on 0800 389 2500.

Student loan for maintenance

Home students in England may also be eligible for a student maintenance loan to help towards accommodation and other living costs. This is available through Student Finance England. More information on the student loan for maintenance can be found on DirectGov.

Maintenance Grant

Home students in England may also be eligible for a non-repayable maintenance grant. This grant will be means tested and you can apply through Student Finance England. More details about these grants and the funding arrangements for trainees from the EU can be found at DirectGov.

Council Tax Reduction

You may be eligible for Council Tax Reduction for the duration of the programme.  Check here if you are eligible.
