These programmes can be delivered prior to commencement or alongside the ITT programme but must be completed before a recommendation to award Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) can be made. The subjects in which SKE funding is available can be seen in appendix 1. 2 Pre-ITT SKE programmes can be delivered by any supplier and in any format that is deemed appropriate by the ITT provider/School Direct lead school. It is the ITT provider/School Direct lead school who requests SKE funding from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), using the SKE request form. As there is a limited budget for SKE, the funding will operate on demand, subject to regular review by NCTL. 3 This manual is designed to be a guide to requesting NCTL funding for pre-ITT SKE programmes and SKE training bursaries. All payment queries should be directed to the Funding Team at [email protected], any queries regarding eligibility or the purpose of SKE scheme should be directed to [email protected] 4 In certain circumstances trainees who have accepted an NCTL-allocated place on pre-ITT SKE Programmes may be eligible for an SKE training bursary.
