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.
