Bursary entitlement

We understand it can be difficult to get out of the classroom to study, so we offer bursaries to schools and colleges across England to help.

These bursaries can contribute towards the costs associated with attending continuing professional development, including course fees, travel and supply cover.

For Primary Teachers

What financial support is available to help you access CPD?

We offer one free place to each primary priority school, on each course. A further £100 per day bursary is payable to the school, on successful completion of the CPD.

Priority schools are those located in Local Authority Districts 5 and 6: check this list or Contact us for details.

What is the standard fee?

For any teachers in non-priority schools, and for the second and subsequent teachers in priority primary schools, the fee is £35 per day of CPD

For Secondary Computing Teachers

What kind of bursaries do we offer on face-to-face CPD?

  1. The Computer Science Accelerator Programme Bursary for teachers without a post A level computer science qualification.
  2. A bursary to support any secondary teachers of computing in priority schools
