Fe teacher training bursaries

Find out about FE teacher training bursaries available to support you if you’re looking to train to teach in the Further Education and training sector.

Full details, including eligibility criteria and qualifying subjects, are available in the Department for Education bursaries and grants funding manuals, which together with the application forms are now available here.

  • Applications are welcome from everyone irrespective of background but, as ethnic minority groups are currently under-represented in the FE teaching workforce, applications from members of these groups are encouraged.
  • Applications are considered in the order in which they are received and the DfE aims to confirm whether or not they have awarded a bursary/grant as soon as possible.
  • Eligible applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the available funding has been exhausted.
