Apply to Teaching Staff Trust
We provide financial support when something’s happened that you couldn’t have expected. If this is you and you’ve worked within the education sector for at least five years, we may well be able to help.
Use the links at the bottom of this page to download an application form. If you're unable to do this, please contact us and we’ll send a hard copy through the post.
Read the application guidance carefully. It’s important that you tell us what has happened to you and why you need financial support.
Complete the application form and return it to us by email to email@example.com or through the post. Please answer every question fully and please attach or post all the documents we request at section 4 of the guidance notes. If your documents aren’t with your application, it will be delayed until you can send them to us.
We will acknowledge your application within five working days of receiving it.
We will process your application. This means checking that you are eligible, looking at both your circumstances and your financial situation and then considering whether we can support you in the way you’ve asked. We may need to ask you for further information - the sooner we receive this, the quicker we can make a decision.
Once we have everything we will usually let you know our decision within three to four weeks.
We will usually arrange to pay your grant to a supplier or service provider. We do make payments direct to applicants when it’s appropriate and we ask you to provide receipts for the goods or services supplied.
Our financial support is to relieve the impact of something you couldn’t have expected to happen and is a one off payment. We discourage repeat applications unless there has been a serious change or deterioration in circumstances.
