Your teacher training programme at the Shires is fee paying, not salaried, so you will need to make sure you have sufficient funds to cover the costs. Fees are paid to University of Worcester. For more details, please visit University of Worcester course fees page.

You may be entitled to a bursary which is tax free and you do not have to pay this back. For more information about the bursaries and scholarships available to you, please visit the Get Into Teaching site here.

You can also apply for a Student Loan or Maintenance Grant.
