    We have a student who is undertaking a full time 12 month pathway course into teachers training. She receives a busary of £5,000 from the Training Developement Agency.

    Has anyone come across this type of bursary & if so do you know if they are eligible to receive a student loan, as this isn’t one of the exeption categories?

    Our claimant has said she doesn’t believe she is entitled.


    There are a number of school based teacher training schemes that attract a TDA grant, but the school also pays the trainee a salary

    The student loan is available in repect of full time initial teacher training courses or for full time further training for qualified teachers. Initial teacher training courese include both undegraduate (BEd) and post graduate (PGCE) courses.

    I have not heard of “pathway to teacher training” but details of teacher training options are on the TDA website
