The School of Education Scholarship Scheme
Launched in 2018, 20 fully-funded training places for Buckinghamshire State Schools now available for 2019 start
Following the success of the launch of the Scholarship Scheme last year, we are delighted to open the 2019 application process for schools in the state-maintained sector in Buckinghamshire.
The latest funding allocations from the Department for Education place Buckinghamshire schools in the bottom 10% of funding per pupil, and, despite rising cash amounts going into schools, spending per pupil is set to fall by 8% between 2014 and 2020. This is the first time since the mid-1990s that school funding has fallen in real terms.
In recognition of this challenging financial backdrop, the new Scholarship Scheme is offering 20 fully-funded places for school teachers and leaders in Buckinghamshire schools on the following courses:
- Up to 10 places on the PGCE with QTS course (Primary or Secondary) or the Assessment Only Route to QTS (Primary or Secondary)
- Up to 5 places on the Postgraduate Certificate (Level 7) in Middle Leadership course
- Up to 5 places on the Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership (MEd)
These qualifications represent an investment of over £100,000 in local schools.
As a leading provider of school-based teacher training in the country, all of our courses focus on the practical application of educational theory. With minimal time out of school, our courses provide frameworks for studying ‘on-the-job’ and blend distance learning with face-to-face sessions.
The Scholarship Scheme is open to all primary and secondary schools in Buckinghamshire County Council LEA.
The deadline for applications is 1 May 2019, and we anticipate announcing the successful candidates in June, ready for them to start their study in the new academic year.
