WLTTA Primary School Bursaries

We have 48 primary schools for the 2022 cohort, with vacancies for unsalaried primary trainees.  All of them are aware that for trainees, the cost can be significant because the DfE offers no bursaries for primary.

25 of these primary schools are however able to offer a school bursary of their own to help reduce the cost. We have 68 places with these unique bursaries ranging from £2,000 to £9,000 depending on the school. We have set up specific courses for the schools that are offering a bursary and you can see this on our vacancy page.

WLTTA SCHOOL BURSARY GENERAL CONDITIONS

The school bursary is paid termly in three equal instalments and would be dependent upon the host school deeming the trainee to be making satisfactory progress.  The school bursaries would be subject to taxation (although it is likely to fall under your tax threshold) and those receiving such payment will be required to invoice the school by letter, including a ‘Unique Reference Number’ provided by HMRC to prove that you are declaring it. 

Any trainee receiving a bursary would be expected to remain at the school at least until the end of the school’s summer term in July 2022.  Payment of the bursaries is the responsibility of the host school (as opposed to WLTTA) and could be discussed at interview as appropriate.

See below the unsalaried primary courses that come with the additional bursary and the level of the bursary available from each school.
