  • Am I entitled to a bursary?

    Please apply online for the bursary. In order to ensure that the school receives the bursary, full attendance on all days is a strict requirement. Any partial absence due to parents’ evenings, inspection processes, or personal appointments will result in the bursary not being awarded. We strongly advise teachers to ensure that all three days of the course are suitable in advance before booking as we will not be able to make exceptions in any circumstances

    All online documentation must also be completed in full in order to qualify for the bursary.

  • How will the bursary be paid?

    The bursary will be paid after completion of the course directly into the schools bank account. Please ensure that you have supplied STEM Learning with details of this account.

  • When will the bursary be paid?

    The bursary will be paid to the school after completion of day 3 as long as all online documentation has been completed by the participant. Please allow six weeks.
