*Mathematics: The new bursaries for Maths teachers (unveiled by the then Secretary of State, Justine Greening, in early October 2017) gives Maths graduates up to £32,000 on top of their teaching salaries in exchange for joining and remaining in the teaching profession.
All Maths graduates will get an upfront payment of £20,000 (£22K for Scholars) when they become Secondary school teachers, with those who stay on in the profession then receiving two subsequent payments of £5,000 in each of their 3rd & 5th years of their teaching career.
However, an increased incremental amount of £7,500 will be available “to encourage the best maths teachers to teach in more challenging schools”. Teaching in Doncaster will entitle you to this increased amount.
Other subjects which are not otherwise listed above (e.g. Primary or PE etc.) do not have a bursary, so if you’re not sure if you’ll be eligible, please contact us to discuss your application, at:
