The Department for Education (DfE) will accept eligible bursary applications on a rolling basis until the available funding has been exhausted. The DfE welcome applications from everyone irrespective of background but, as ethnic minority groups are currently under-represented in the FE teaching workforce, we would encourage applications from members of these groups.
