Tax Free Bursaries and Scholarships are available in shortage subject areas - more information can be found on the DfE funding and support page here.

The entry criteria for all our courses can be found on the 'About you' page.

If you are interested in joining us in September 2024, you can now apply here via DfE 'Apply'.  You will need to apply directly to your local hub and can find more information about the courses offered in your area, and the course codes on the hub pages.

Note - our courses are advertised as 'QTS with PGCE'. The PGCE element of the course is optional. You can either choose to do 'QTS only', or take the PGCE uplift.  This can be decided after our summer induction programme. 

There are two opportunities to apply:

  • Apply: up to four applications (any route), which will be considered at the same time.
  • Apply again: open to applicants who were not successful the first time round, or withdrew/declined their applications. Applicants make one choice at a time and can do so from the point of rejection from the first of their initial 4 providers it is not necessary to await responses from all 4 choices before selecting an alternative course. 

Equality and Diversity

IFT are committed to making our education system more inclusive and diverse to reflect the communities and children we serve. This commitment applies to both the recruitment of trainee teachers in our hubs and within our own organisation. We know we can do better.
