A bursary scheme to encourage top graduates to teach in further education has been extended. The scheme, originally available for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 academic years, will now continue into 2015-16. It is specifically for teachers in maths, English and special educational needs. The maximum bursary available is pound;25,000 for maths graduates with a first-class degree, while graduates specialising in English or SEN will receive pound;9,000. Skills minister Nick Boles said the move would give the "extra push" needed to encourage the brightest and best. Recruitment is open now and graduates are due to begin their training from September 2015. More information.
