A future career with Future Academies
We look to recruit teachers with depth of subject knowledge, intelligence, courage and energy. Career progression at Future Academies depends upon what you do and what you know rather than length of service.
We are keen to have our SCITT trainees stay on with us once you have finished your training year, dependent on vacancies.
We are able to offer rooms in two houses at significantly reduced rent for the duration of the SCITT training course to those interested in living close to our placement schools. Trainees will have their own room and use of the communal kitchen, living room and bathroom. Bills are not included in the rent and would need to be paid separately.
All candidates who are offered a place on our course have the opportunity to register an interest in renting a room with us.
How much are the tuition fees?
Tuition Fees are £9,000.
Can I get a tuition fee loan?
You may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees. Such loans are available through Student Finance England. More information on the tuition fee loan can be found on the Directgov website:
we would strongly recommend that you apply for student finance at an early stage. You do not need a confirmed place on a programme to do this. Use your first choice of course to submit your application; you can update this later if you need to.
How do I pay my tuition fee?
If you are applying for a loan from the Student Loans Company, your tuition fees will be paid automatically to us and you will pay them back, according to a pre-determined schedule, once you are employed and earning over the minimum salary threshold.
If you are not applying for a tuition fee loan then you will need to pay your tuition fees directly to us. We ask for the following payments:
|September: £4,500 (50%)|
|February: £2,250 (25%)|
|May: £2,250 (25%)|
What are maintenance loans?
Depending on your personal financial circumstances, you may also be eligible for a maintenance loan to contribute towards your costs of living. This is means-tested and will be completely individualised to each applicant. This is paid termly, at the start of each term, by the Student Loans Company.
