Please note: When applying for a place, your school agrees that it is able to pay for your place on the course. If you are eligible for a scholarship, we will apply on your behalf and contact your school if you have been successful in gaining a fully funded place. Although we cannot guarantee scholarship places for anyone, it is likely that those working in an area 5 or 6, or in a MAT with schools in an area 5 or 6, will be successful. Previous evidence suggests that those who meet the criteria and apply for scholarships are successful in attaining funding when they apply early for the course. As yet, there is no confirmation of scholarships from the DfE for 2020/21. If you have any questions about your eligibility please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
