The RIS programme is available via two initial teacher training routes for year one: a salaried route and a bursary route. We provide two different options so we can find a training route which is suitable to your prior experience and circumstances. Whichever route you end up on you’ll still become a fully qualified teacher, participate in bespoke RIS training and make a real difference to young people. After your training year, both routes will move onto the national teacher pay scale and receive a full salary.
Whichever route you undertake you will achieve qualified teacher status at the end of year one. The two routes vary in terms of how much responsibility you have whilst you train and how much experience of working with young people you already have.
The bursary route is suited to people with limited experience of working with young people in educational settings as it allows more time to adapt to the rigours of the fast-paced environment of schools.
The salaried is only suited to those with significant experience of working with young people and the desire to take on a demanding workload on top of the requirements of your training course.
As everyone has different levels and types of experience we will make a final decision on which route is suitable for you after your first-round interview.
