(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations, which apply only in relation to England, authorise the Secretary of State to make grants to institutions providing post-graduate initial teacher training to facilitate and encourage the training of a person as a teacher (regulation 3(1)). Such grants may only be paid in respect of expenditure incurred by the institutions in providing bursaries to students undertaking, or proposing to undertake, such courses (regulation 3(2)).
The maximum amount of grant that may be used to provide a bursary is £6,000 (regulation 3(3)). The payment of grant is dependent on any further conditions imposed by, and in respect of training approved by, the Secretary of State (regulation 4).
