Scotland’s STEM Bursary Scheme is being expanded this year to encourage more people to train as secondary school teachers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The scheme opened for applications on 16 March 2020.
It means that 150 career changers will now be able to apply for the £20,000 bursary to support them while training, to fill the high-demand teaching roles in STEM subjects.
The scheme’s budget is also being increased from £2 million to £3 million.
