By utilising your Apprenticeship Levy through our university delivered course, we provide your school or trust with a sustainable model of retaining and retraining staff through our Apprenticeship Levy-funded PGCE with QTS training year.
The PGCE with QTS course can be delivered as a Level 6 Teaching Apprenticeships, as these are primarily funded through your Apprenticeship levy. This is a fund that employers, including schools, academy trusts and local authorities contribute to if their wage bill exceeds £3m per annum.
The vast majority of schools across the country will in some way contribute to an apprenticeship levy account. This can be held centrally by the school, by a multi academy trust that you are a part of or by your local authority. It is through these contributions’ employers including schools can use those accrued levy contributions to fund apprenticeships and training provisions for their staff including a university-delivered PGCE with QTS course.
It is important to note that your member of staff would be employed as a minimum of UQT 1 for the duration of their training year.
If you do not pay into a levy or would like information regarding other funding routes for then please see our Levy Donation page.
