NCTL funding is used to cover training fees and to make a contribution towards your salary.  High Priority secondary trainees are issued with a full-time contract for 9.5 months or 10 months and paid according to the timetable they are able to teach from the start of their training. The salary range for high priority subjects is from £13,162 to £17,077 (10 months). Annual equivalent £16,626 to £20,492.

NCTL funding is used to cover training fees and to make a contribution towards your salary. Priority secondary trainees are issued with a 0.7 (fte) contract for 9.5 months and paid on the unqualified teacher scale. The salary range for priority subjects is £9,214 to £12,978.   You will spend four days each week working within your placement school and one day each week in central training.  You will contribute to the cost of your training either by undertaking a limited teaching commitment each week or by providing some supply cover within your placement school as you become more experienced.

Other secondary subjects: There is currently no NCTL funding available.  Secondary SCITT Salaried training is, however, available on a school funded basis.  If you are currently employed within a school and have some teaching experience, you should discuss school funded training options with your Headteacher before submitting an application through UCAS.
