All scholarships have now been awarded for September 2019. Applications for September 2020 will be accepted from July 2019.
About this route
The Future Teach Scholarship is supported by our sponsor, 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 scholarship worth £38,000 during their first year of training with us, providing:
- £29,000 tax-free bursary, paid in monthly instalments.
- £9,000 to pay training fees, in full.
Candidates are guaranteed a placement at one of our six schools in London and Hertfordshire. 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
- All candidates must apply for a place on our SCITT through UCAS (see: www.futuretraining.org).
- Then, to be considered for the scholarship you must submit a CV and covering letter to our Head of ITT, Natalie Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org). In your letter, please specify which phase (primary or secondary) and subject 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.
If you are shortlisted for the scholarship, you will be invited to 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 your career aspirations
- Your specialist subject knowledge
- How your subject might furnish students with cultural literacy.
These scholarships are very competitive and we are looking for recent graduates 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.
If you have any questions about the Future Teach Scholarship, or if you would like more information, please contact Natalie Parker, our Head of ITT (email@example.com).
