Teacher training incentives


Each year the Welsh Government offers Teacher Training incentives. The bursary amounts that are available and the subjects to which they are linked are determined annually in response to the needs of the education sector.

The Minister for Education and Skills has announced the availability, subject coverage and level of PGCE initial teacher training (ITT) incentives that will apply in Wales.
