Individuals who hold QTS on the first day of their ITT course are not eligible for a training bursary.
Under current reciprocal arrangements, most qualified teachers from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland are able to receive QTS following application to NCTL. Teachers who qualified in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA can also apply to NCTL to be awarded QTS. Lead schools and ITT providers should advise applicants in both of these categories to apply to NCTL. Teachers who are successful in their application and receive QTS will not be eligible for an ITT place, or a bursary; those that are unsuccessful in their application to NCTL may be considered eligible.
Potential trainees who may already be eligible to receive QTS under the conditions described above should email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Qualified teacher status (QTS): qualify to teach in England for more information.
