Professional and Career Development Loans

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans to pay for courses and training. You may be able to borrow between £300 and £10,000. Loans are usually offered at a reduced interest rate and the government pays interest while you re studying. For more information, click here.

Montessori Centre International is listed on the Skills Funding Agency list of approved providers (Ref No. 21037).

Birts Bursary

One aspect of MSN s public benefit is to widen participation to Montessori training. A number of discretionary awards for Birts Bursary are made annually and can range in value depending on defined need and competition for limited resources. Please note that only in very rare and exceptional circumstances will the Bursary cover full fees. 

Male Practitioner Bursary

From 2016 MSN will be allocating one award specifically to male applicants with the intention of attracting more males into early years training. MSN feels strongly that there is a need to have more male role models in Montessori settings and to balance the ratios in a predominantly female profession.
