About the course

Our subject mentors in Chemistry are experienced teachers who are enthusiastic about your development and know what is required for you to succeed.

They have designed a thorough programme of teacher training for you that will enable you to learn new skills in Chemistry and forge professional relationships with experienced teachers within the Academy Trust.

Additionally, CPD sessions are run on a weekly basis to ensure that you maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills you need within the teaching profession.

How school placements work

As part of the teacher training course, trainees will be expected to complete a 4-week placement in one of the Institutions within the Academy trust.

Fees

The course fees for 2020 to 2021 are as follows:
Student type Fees to pay
UK students £5,960
EU students £5,960

Financial support

You could be eligible for either:

  • a scholarship of £28,000
  • a bursary of £26,000

With a scholarship or bursary, you’ll also get early career payments of £2,000 in your second, third and fourth years of teaching (£3,000 in some areas of England).

To qualify for a scholarship you’ll need a degree of 2:1 or above in Chemistry or a related subject. For a bursary you’ll need a 2:2 or above in any subject.

You can’t claim both a bursary and a scholarship - you can only claim one.

Find out how to apply for a scholarship. You don’t need to apply for a bursary - if you’re eligible, you’ll automatically start receiving it once you begin your course. Find out how you’ll be paid.

You may also be eligible for a loan while you study – note that you’ll have to apply for undergraduate student finance.
