Summary of changes:
"The £3,000 currently available for primary teacher trainees with a First or PhD to train as a teacher is being discontinued"Biology TeachersBursaries for students wanting to train as biology teachers next year have increased dramatically.
A would-be biology teacher can get £26,000 to train as a teacher next year, if they have a First, 2:1 or 2:2 degree.
This is up from the £15,000 bursary a biology trainee could receive this year if they have a First, the £12,000 if they have a 2:1 or the £10,000 ofered if they have a 2:2.English TeachersBursaries for students wanting to train as English teachers next year have increased dramatically.
Bursaries for English teachers have also jumped from £9,000 for those with First or 2:1 degrees in the current academic year to £15,000 next year – a bursary that will be open to those with 2:2 degrees as well.Physics TeachersPhysics bursaries are still among the highest, but have dropped from a top rate of £30,000 in 2017-18 to £26,000 in 2018-19.
Similarly, the physics scholarship – available from professional bodies - will drop from £30,000 to £28,000.Maths TeachersMaths trainees can now get up to £35,000 - but not in one go. The government has put in place an up-front bursary of £20,000, or scholarship of £22,000, with two further “early career payments” available as retention incentives.
Under this scheme, eligible maths teachers will get £5,000 in each of their third and fifth year of teaching, if they have taught in a state-funded school in England since completing their ITT course. These payments will rise to £7,500 each in selected local authorities.
"It comes after criticism that large bursaries are not helping to retain teachers in the profession."
