As a prospective trainee teacher you are also strongly encouraged to register your interest in teaching via the Get into Teaching website.
The IOP Teacher Training Scholarships are run in partnership with the Department for Education and therefore are only available for eligible initial teacher training programmes in England. If you are awarded a scholarship it will replace the government bursary you will receive. It is not an additional award.
