Subsidies for AMSP professional development courses

Through government funding, the AMSP is able to provide free or low cost events to support teachers working in a state-funded school or college in England.

For some of our professional development courses, additional subsidies are available to enable more teachers to participate, particularly teachers in AMSP Priority Areas.

The table below lists the courses for which additional subsidies are available for teachers working in state-funded schools or colleges.

Your school/college is eligible for the subsidy if all of the following apply:

  • the teacher is working in a state-funded school or college in England
  • the course fee, where applicable, has been paid by the school or college
  • the teacher fully and actively participates in the course

Courses may have additional payment criteria. Please check the subsidy details on the course webpage before making an application for a place.

During the application process, you will be asked to provide financial details for your school/college. These will be used to pay the subsidy.

For most courses, we accept applications from teachers who do not work in the state sector; however, course fees may apply. Information about eligibility and fees are provided within course details. In all cases, teachers from state-funded schools and colleges are given priority when allocating places on oversubscribed courses. For further details, please see our statement on funding and eligibility for AMSP professional development courses.
