Eligibility and Fees

Teachers interested in participating in the programme will need to meet the following criteria:

  • A minimum of three years’ experience as a teacher.

  • A current full member of the Chartered College (initial application may be made without membership, but if successful, membership will be required before starting the programme).

  • A practising teacher working with students up to 19 years of age.

You will also need to have support from your headteacher or relevant member of your Senior Leadership Team to apply and they will be asked to complete a reference at the beginning and end of the programme.


The cost of undertaking the 2020-21 programme was £895.

We are committed to offering affordable solutions for teachers who want to participate in the programme and we understand that the total cost of the programme may be difficult for individual teachers to pay in full. Please contact us to discuss your payment options.

Many applicants have been wholly or partly funded by their school, so do approach your headteacher. When a school is paying on behalf of a teacher, we ask that schools pay the fee in full at the start of the programme.
