Languages Teacher Training Scholarships: important update on programme status 2021/2

The Department for Education recently announced changes to the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) financial incentives, affecting bursary and scholarship provision for the academic year 2021/22.

For 2021/2, the financial offer for Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) trainees is bursary only. Therefore the British Council Languages Teacher Training Scholarships programme will be closed for applications.

To see the revised programme of ITT bursary and scholarship funding please visit the Get Into Teaching – Funding Your Training page.

Please note that the bursary is coordinated directly by the Department for Education and is subject to its own eligibility criteria. Enquiries should be directed to the Get Into Teaching team (via their dedicated contact details or online chat function).

The British Council will update this webpage should the Languages Teacher Training Scholarship programme return in future academic cycles.
