Applications for September 2020 are now open.



  1. Check if your chosen subject/route is available here
  2. Check if you meet our requirements
  3. Fill in our Application Form




If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to attend the first stage of our assessment process, which will at one of our regional assessment centres. If you are successful at stage one you will be shortlisted for the second stage of assessment. This is an opportunity to teach a prepared 30-minute lesson to a class of students at the placement school of your choice. This is followed by a reflective discussion on your lesson with the observer (usually a senior teacher or head of department in the school). 



You'll be notified within 48 hours of your assessment day whether you've been successful or not, subject to references. Your offer will be conditional on you:

  • Having passed your skills tests
  • Having clear identity and DBS checks

We endeavour to place you in your first choice of school. If this is not possible we will seek alternatives that work for you. 


We do require you to submit an application via UCAS to formally accept your teacher training place. However, as we do not require this to consider your application, you can complete it at the very beginning of the process or once we have made you an offer.

If you are applying to multiple training providers and would like to submit your UCAS form first, we will gladly accept this in place of your application form and follow the same assessment process. Please note, that should you have offers from multiple providers placed through UCAS, you must accept your chosen place within ten days of receiving your final offer.


If you'd like assistance with your application, please get in contact, and we'll be happy to help.
