If you have a passion for computing and are looking to teach, you could be awarded a £28,000 scholarship - that is £2,000 more than a bursary. Scholarships are awarded by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, to support you whilst you train to teach and also offer you a range of benefits to help you in your teaching career.
Benefits include, BCS membership, online continuous professional development training, networking and mentoring opportunities.
To be considered for a BCS scholarship you’ll need to have a minimum of a 2:2, or be likely to achieve a 2:2, preferably in computer science or maths.
If you don’t have a degree in either of these subjects, you’ll need to:
- undertake a computing subject knowledge enhancement course, or
- have a degree with an extensive amount of computing content – for example, a STEM degree
- have a degree as well as significant professional experience as part of the computing industry
You can find out more about eligibility on the BCS website.
