The tuition fee for the Norfolk Teacher Training Centre programme for 2017-18, one year full-time and leading to Qualified Teacher Status, is £9,000.
This course is eligible for finance under the Student Loans Scheme. In addition, tax-free bursaries of up to £30,000 may be available for trainee teachers in certain priority subjects. Please contact us for more information.
Financial support is not available to trainees to cover the costs of travelling to and from their placement schools.
How the finance works
All of our places are fee-funded teacher training places. This means that you are responsible for our training fees and most people usually source these through Student Finance England.
Additionally, you might be entitled to a bursary of up to £28,000 depending on the subject you wish to teach and class of degree (please see below).
For subjects that have no bursary attached to them, you can apply to Student Finance for maintenance loans and grants. Whilst you need to apply for loans, you do not need to apply for bursaries, we deal with this for you.
You may also be entitled to additional funding for a Subject Knowledge Enhancement programme.
You may not be employed by your placement schools on fee-funded places as an instructor, unqualified teacher, cover supervisor or any other similar role and you cannot be allocated a timetable which is exclusively yours. This is to ensure that you are free to learn how to teach.
Bursaries for 2018/19
As a trainee teacher you could be eligible for a bursary up to £28,000.
The Department for Education has recently published details of bursaries for 2018-19 for teachers training through the School Direct (non-salaried) route.

The majority of our current group of NTTC trainees have received some sort of bursary to support their training year, ranging from £4,000-£25,000.
Please be aware that subjects eligible for bursaries and the level of funds available change every year depending upon the teacher supply requirements for the year head.
