The pupillage award for pupils commencing pupillage in October 2020 will be £65,000. Up to £22,000 is available for draw-down during the BPTC year. In addition, in their second six months, pupils can expect to earn some additional income from their own work.
The first three months of tenancy are rent-free to those joining from pupillage. We also guarantee the first-year earnings of new tenants. That is to say, if they experience a shortfall in receipts below the level of the pupillage award, calculated on a monthly basis, we will make up the difference to the level of the award, as a loan.
