student finance

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by nicnaks06, Sep 1, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Does anyone know if it is possible to get student finance whilst doing a gtp?
  2. I doubt it, as you are paid a salary as an unqualified teacher.

    Its an employment based route so you are employed as a teacher for the duration of the GTP and paid on the unqualified teacher scale- currently that starts at £15,817 nationally. The funding for the programme comes via the TDA - or if schools wish they can so called self-fund i.e pay the costs themselves. However where there are masters modules availableI have heard of some GTP teachers taking out a loan to cover the tuition fee element.
