The Department of Education provides RTU with direct funding for PQH (NI).
Schools are also funded for the professional development of their staff by the Department of Education, therefore some elements of the programme may incur a school cost.
Regardless of school size or situation, RTU will only provide substitute cover for up to 3 days for school placement. Schools are expected to fund the applicant for any other days during the Development or Graduation Stage (apart from those elements highlighted in the previous sentence).
Travel is currently available for most elements of the Development Stage, however, this is being reviewed in light of the economic situation.Travel is not available for the Entry or Graduation Stages.
