A bursary worth £500 is being made available to 100 SET members joining the next cohort to work towards Advanced Teacher Status (ATS).
Extra support will be also be available to help those working towards the gold standard practitioner status in the FE and Training sector.
Those awarded the status will continue to be awarded Chartered Teacher status as all current ATS holders are. The 100 bursaries will be available to those joining the next cohort to work towards ATS, which will begin in October 2020. Each bursary will be worth £500, meaning that participants – or their employer – will pay just £250.
Applying for an ATS bursary
These places are limited and preference will be given to those applicants who present a strong case for requiring a bursary. They will do so by making a statement explaining how a funded place will support both themselves and their organisation, focusing on three key areas of the ETF Professional Standards: Values & Attributes; Knowledge & Understanding; and Skills.
Those working towards ATS will benefit from extra support including a programme of webinars. This support has been introduced in response to feedback from those who have previously attained the status.
Visit the Apply for ATS page to find out more and download the application form.
The window for applications for the next cohort of the ATS programme is open until 13 September 2020. Successful applicants will be offered places within two weeks of submitting their application, ready for a 1 October start.
