We want the most talented people to become teachers. So if you’re interested in teaching secondary maths, physics, chemistry, computing, languages or design and technology, you could be eligible for Premier Plus. This service offers a range of exclusive benefits – in addition to our standard programme of support and guidance – when you register with us.
To be eligible for the service, you’ll need to hold (or be predicted) a 2:2 degree or above and be interested in training to teach in the academic year 2015/16.
The Premier Plus service includes:
- personalised one-to-one advice and guidance from a named adviser on becoming a teacher, including support with your application
- invitations to events held exclusively for Premier Plus registrants
- additional support for arranging your school experience via the school experience programme
- regular communications from us with important news, application hints and tips, and updates on funding
Please note that you may be asked to provide evidence that you have, or are predicted to be awarded, a first-class, 2:1 or 2:2 degree or equivalent overseas degree classification before accessing Premier Plus support.
Qualifying for Premier Plus based on your overseas equivalent degree class does not determine or guarantee what bursary rate you would be eligible for. The decision on what bursary amount you are eligible for sits with the school(s) or university leading your training.
To find out more, you can speak to a Teaching Line adviser on Freephone 0800 389 2500.
