WLTSA Primary School Bursaries

We have 20 schools offering salaried courses and our WLTSA Primary School Bursaries do not apply to salaried courses.

We also have 32 primary schools offering to host trainees on unsalaried courses and all of them are aware that for trainees, the cost can be significant.  17 of these schools are able to offer a school bursary to their trainees, across four different WLTSA unsalaried primary programmes.  These are offered in addition to anything from DfE for 2019-20, see DfE Bursaries and Loans (likely to be published by DfE in Sept/Oct 2018).  

We are unaware of any other primary schools in the country offering additional funding at this sort of level.

Remember that on all unsalaried programmes, postgraduate tuition fee and maintenance loans from Student Finance England are also available subject to eligibility. You would be able to get a student oyster card and in many boroughs, reduced council tax.

 

WLTSA SCHOOL BURSARY GENERAL CONDITIONS

The school bursary would be paid termly in three equal instalments and would be dependent upon the host school deeming the trainee to be making satisfactory progress.  The school bursaries would be subject to taxation and those receiving such payment will be required to invoice the school by letter, including a ‘Unique Reference Number’ provided by HMRC. 

Any trainee receiving a bursary would be expected to remain at the school at least until the end of the school’s summer term in July 2019.  Payment of the bursaries is the responsibility of the host school (as opposed to WLTSA) and could be discussed at interview as appropriate.

We also have 15 schools seeking unsalaried trainees who are not in a position to offer a school bursary, but DfE bursaries still apply.  Please believe that these schools (listed in the vacancy tables on our website) are just as committed and hugely keen to recruit excellent trainees.
