To ask the Secretary of State for Education for what reason he has decided that there should be no training bursary available for PGCE citizenship courses.

Trainees currently receive no bursary for PGCE citizenship courses. Bursaries are an additional incentive, on top of the full package of student support, to attract teacher trainees. Citizenship has a good record in attracting enough high quality trainees to meet the demand from schools for new teachers. We will therefore continue not to offer a bursary for citizenship for those who train in 2012/13. We review ITT bursaries each year to ensure that they reflect the level of supply and demand for trainees in each subject.
