Are you passionate about French, German or Spanish? If so, you could receive a languages scholarship of £27,500 to train as a secondary school teacher.
As a language teacher you can continue to use your language every day. You can play a part in equipping the next generation with skills employers need. Good language teachers are in demand and there has never been a better time to enter the profession, with attractive starting salaries and long-term job prospects.
As a Languages Teacher Training Scholar, you will, in addition to the financial support, receive access to mentor support and a range of professional development opportunities and resources.
Take a step towards inspiring a new generation of young people to love languages as much as you do.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible to apply, you must have one of the following in French, German or Spanish:
- a 2:1, or predicted 2:1
- a relevant PhD or Master’s degree, or recognised equivalent.
We may also consider your application if you have a degree in another subject, or a 2.2 (or predicted 2.2) if you are able to demonstrate significant knowledge in the target language.
And you must meet the student finance criteria. To receive the scholarship you must also have secured a place on an eligible non-salaried languages teacher training scheme in England for the 2017/18 academic year by September 2017. But you can apply for the scholarship at the same time as applying for an eligible course. If you are unsure about your eligibility for the scholarship your chosen teacher training provider will be able to advise you.
How do I apply?
You can apply directly to the official website for a scholarship alongside your application to secure a training place at your preferred school or university. The closing date is 31 July 2017, please apply early to avoid disappointment.
If you are not awarded a scholarship, you could still access a bursary - you can find out about the funding and training options available and how to apply for teacher training on the Department for Education's Get Into Teaching website.
