I have two degrees in physics and know there is a £26,000 bursary or £28,000 scholarship for doing a secondary physics PGCE.

Are the bursary or scholarship also available for primary PGCE?

Thank you

There might be some income for primary with a specialisation in maths. It may be £6,000.

Thanks for the reply.

Is it the case that a primary PGCE simply does not offer the same generous buraries and scholarships that a secondary pgce does?

Yes.

The bursaries are designed to attract people to teach in subjects where there is a shortage of teachers in the UK. There's no real shortage of primary teachers, and unis don't struggle to recruit for primary PGCEs- so no need for a big bursary!
