DfE funding announcement


Recommended Posts

Two hundred early years apprentices will benefit from an increased bursary of £3,000 (up from £1,500), with a further £300 available for training and study as part of the drive to attract high quality candidates to the profession.


To be eligible for this funding, applicants need to secure an apprenticeship position in a nursery, school nursery, or children's centre that delivers the early learning places for two-year olds and hold at least a GCSE, at Grade C or above, in English and Maths.


Elizabeth Truss, Childcare and Education Minister, said: 'I hope the increased bursaries announced today encourage more talented people to start a career in early education, which can be a fantastically rewarding job'.


The scheme, which is run by the National College for Teaching and Leadership, is now open for applications. Full details are available here: http://ow.ly/r59BU
