Application and Interview
Applications to join our training can be made via 2 routes this year:
The NEW Department for Education APPLY website
The traditional UCAS route.
Both routes of application come directly to us and can be made at any point in the year. When we receive your application, we will check your suitability based on qualification, reference and your personal statements. We will then make contact with you.
At this point, if we are happy with your application, we will invite you to formal interview. Interview will take place in school and involve some simple written and practical activities which will be communicated with you in advance. Interview will take place in front of a small panel including members of staff from our partnership and the University.
After the interview, we will discuss your suitability as a panel and then communicate a negative or positive decision with you. It is likely, for many candidates who are in the middle of a degree, that a positive decision may be 'conditional' whilst you await confirmation of your degree level.
For Primary School Teacher Training, any 2:2 or higher degree qualification, combined with GCSE 'C' or equivalent in English, Maths or Science are required to join our training. You will also be required to undertake a higher level DBS check and be checked against the barred list (for working with children) before undertaking training.
