The DfE is funding all training, at no cost to schools.
Schools participating in the early rollout areas, Greater Manchester, Bradford and Doncaster, and the North East, benefit from funding for 5% off-timetable in the second year of teaching for their early career teachers, in addition to the existing 10% timetable reduction in the first year. They also benefit from funded time for mentors to support their early career teachers in their second year of teaching.
Schools outside of these areas participating in the one-year programme do not benefit from additional funding, but receive all training free of charge.
Read more about funding in our FAQs.
