Supporting new teachers: grants for initial teacher training

Following extensive discussions with the department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), IfL will be administering government grants to offset the cost of initial teacher training (ITT) for teachers who are studying a part-time, 'in-service', Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) from September 2010.

Further education (FE) providers will be able to claim a flat rate, non means tested, grant of £400 per individual teacher or trainer through IfL for those who are IfL members. The current agreement is valid only for the 2010-11 financial year.

Lee Davies, IfL's deputy chief executive said, “IfL is looking forward to working with BIS, colleges and learning providers to support the development of new teachers and trainers to the sector over the coming year. Development of frontline staff in the further education and skills sector is critical in the current economic climate.”

Further details about the programme will be published in the employers' area as they become available. To see if you are eligible, look at our quick questions below.
