The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) allocates and funds teacher training places providing financial incentives including training bursaries and scholarships. Candidates applying for School Direct Secondary places in maths may be eligible for a tax free bursary or scholarship to support their training. Scholarships of £25,000 are available for maths on the School Direct secondary programme. These prestigious awards are aimed at high quality graduates with a 2:1 and above, who are passionate about their subject and have the potential to be inspirational teachers. Trainees awarded a scholarship cannot receive a bursary. However, trainees who are not awarded a scholarship will continue to be eligible for a standard bursary. Further details can be found on the Teaching Agency website.
