Tuition Fee and Maintenance Loans are available to trainees teachers to assist with paying course fees and living costs incurred during the training year

Tuition Fee Loans

You can apply for tuition fees loans to cover up to £9,250, these are paid directly to George Abbot SCITT by Student Finance England. Tuition Fee Loans are not repayable until you are earning over £25,000.

The Government has recently announced that it will reimburse the student loans of trainees and teachers who qualified up to five years ago in Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Physics and Modern Foreign Languages who are training/working in certain local authorities. Currently, we do not train any teachers within these local authorities but it is possible that this scheme may be rolled out nationally in the future.


Maintenance Loans 

You can apply for a maintenance loan for up to £12,010 to help with living costs. These loans are paid into your bank account at the start of each term. The exact amount you can borrow depends on your household income and where you are studying.
