The Tuition fees for RCTTP are £9250.
Trainees who are not on a salaried course can access student loans to pay the fees and may also be entitled to a Maintenance Loan (this is means tested). Trainees usually opt to take up the Tuition Fee Loan to cover the costs of training however in some cases trainees choose to pay the fees themselves.
For more information on student loans please visit: www.gov.uk/student-finance
Trainees on a SCITT or School Direct (non-salaried) course may also be entitled to a tax free bursary. This is paid via the training provider in 10 monthly instalments between October and July.
The bursary amount varies depending on your degree result and the phase/subject you are training to teach, it also changes year on year.
