Funding for School Direct Training

Some independent schools offer School Direct on the job training places where the trainee is paid a salary.

They may also cover the cost of their training and assessment. Each school will make its own arrangements with the trainee teacher.

In the state maintained sector School Direct training may be funded through the student loan system.

The cost of QTS training varies considerably but is unlikely to be more than £6,000.

Under the HMC Teacher Training programme, all trainees receive a salary and training costs are met by the employing school.
