Secondary SCITT Salaried Finances for 2020-2021

Secondary SCITT Salaried is an employment-based route into teaching supported by the Department of Education.

There are no tuition fees payable on this training route. You are not able to apply for maintenance grants during your training. You will be employed by your placement school with the usual employment rights and you will be trained by Suffolk and Norfolk SCITT who are the awarding body for QTS and PGCE. There will be a small additional fee for  your PGCE qualification and this will be shared with you if you are successfully recruited onto the course. 

Secondary Salaried trainees are paid full time on the Unqualified Teacher Scale for the duration of the course. The salaries for 2020-2021 will be between £13,600 and £16,700 depending on the number of teaching hours that your employing placement school requires you to teach from the start of the course. Please note that you will be taxed on any salary that you earn in total for the year of 2020-2021 and at the current time, the Personal Allowance is £12,500 but this may change for the tax year of 2020-2021. More information about personal tax rates and allowances can be found here

The duration of your training course will be 9.5 months so will start in the last week of August (for induction) and then you will complete your training by the middle of June 2021.

Secondary Salaried training is available in the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Design and Technology, English, Geography, History, Maths, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Physics and Religious Education. There are no part time opportunities on this programme. 

When making an application on UCAS, you must include in your personal statement the information that a school is prepared to make a contribution towards your salary as the grant from the Department of Education does not cover all your salary costs. If you wish for more information regarding the financial contribution required by a supporting school then please email and this information will be shared with you.
