Tuition fees:

For the academic year 2022-23 the Teach Thurrock Primary Partnership will charge a tuition fee of £9250.

Trainees may be eligible for a maintenance grant or special support which will be determined by the Student Loan Company when applicants make their application for a student loan.

Go to for more information regarding student loans. Repayment may only be £30 per month once you start working. Teach Thurrock offers a £2000 bursary to all of our student teachers to support them whilst on the programme.

On successful completion of the programme, the Teach Thurrock Primary Partnership supports each candidate in gaining a teaching post in either one of the partnership schools or in Thurrock.  Candidates may be able to take up their post from July 2023 through early start programmes in individual schools but this is negotiable.

Apprentices do not pay course fees as their training is funded by the Government.  They receive a salary which is Point 1 on the Unqualified Teachers’ Scale.
