Future Teach Scholarship
Applications for September 2020 will open on UCAS Teacher Training from 8 October. Applicants interested in applying for our Future Teach Scholarship should apply on UCAS and then submit a CV and covering letter. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your eligibility.
The Future Teach Scholarship is supported by our sponsors, Future. Trainees following this route are exceptional graduates from top universities, notable for their outstanding academic records, detailed subject knowledge, and ability to pass on their passion for their subject to our students.
Successful candidates receive a highly competitive scholarship during their first year of training with us, providing:
- £29,000 tax-free bursary, paid in monthly instalments.
- Your £9,250 tuition-fee paid for in full.
Candidates are guaranteed a placement at one of our seven schools in London and Hertfordshire. They train alongside other trainee teachers to share best practice. They gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the PGCE.
We are extremely proud of our excellent outcomes and employment rates. Our alumni have experienced rapid progression early in their careers, including promotions to Head of Department, Head of Year, and Curriculum Writer.
Application and interview process
Once you have applied for a place at our SCITT through UCAS for one of our unsalaried programmes, please submit a CV and covering letter to our Head of ITT, Natalie Parker (email@example.com). In your covering letter you should state that you are applying for the Future Teach Scholarship and which subject or phase (primary or secondary) you are interested in teaching.
Interviews for the Future Teach Scholarship take place on a rolling-basis and after you have successfully interviewed for a place on our SCITT. Once your SCITT place is confirmed, your application will be considered for the Future Teach Scholarship. This will include a rigorous panel interview with our sponsors and senior representatives of Future Academies. The format of these interviews is always tailored to your experiences and subject knowledge, but you can expect to be asked about:
- Your educational background
- Why you want to become a teacher and what your career aspirations are
- Your specialist subject knowledge
- How your subject might furnish students with cultural literacy.
These scholarships are very competitive and we are looking for unique candidates who possess exceptional subject knowledge and will go on to make a life-changing difference to our students. Applications for the Future Teach Scholarship start early and you are encouraged to apply early on in the academic year if you would like to be considered.
