Payment of fees for the National Certificate in Educational Administration course
Most schools that we have been in touch with have indicated that they will pay for the fees for entry onto the one year National Certificate in Educational Administration course, run by the School of Educational Administration (SEA).
In cases where a number of schools in one LEA wish to have students take the course, the SEA is willing to negotiate a special price to cover all the administrators working within the LEA who wish to take the course.
A number of bursaries exist for school administrators who wish to take the course and who find that neither the LEA nor the school is willing to pay for the administrator to take the course. These bursaries do not cover all the fees, but do make a contribution to the cost of the course, and also allow the administrator to pay for the course over the period of the course, rather than as a one-off payment.
Application for a Student Bursary should be made in writing to:
The School of Educational Administration
The application must include a letter either from either the headteacher of the school, the chair of the governors of the school, plus a letter from the Local Education Authority (if the school is in receipt of LEA funding), each letter stating that the school (LEA in the case of the second letter) is unwilling to provide funding for this course.
It is particularly helpful if applicants can also provide an email address, so that the Bursary Committee can request any further information that it requires in order to make a decision.
Applications are normally considered within between one and three weeks.
