FE Golden Hellos – an update

Skills for Life Network

Ministers recently announced changes to the current recruitment and retention incentives

The changes apply to the 2006/07 academic year, and are intended to boost recruitment in a wider range of shortage subject areas than are currently available.

The new shortage subject list for Training Bursaries and Golden Hellos, effective from September 2006, includes the following:

  • Maths
  • Science
  • Construction
  • ICT
  • English
  • Design and Technology
  • Engineering
  • Basic Skills (i.e. Literacy, Numeracy and ESOL to Level II)
  • Business Administration (Bursaries only)
  • Health and Social Care

 

Pre-service FE trainee Skills for Life teachers and FE Skills for Life teachers in their second year of teaching will be eligible for a continuation of the £6,000 Bursary and £4,000 Golden Hello.

The Training Bursary payments are untaxed, but taxed for Golden Hellos.

For the first time, part-time pre-service students will be eligible for a training bursary on a pro-rata basis and will play an important part in the widening participation agenda.

For more information, visit the Teachernet website.
