How To Apply

The decision which will change your life forever

So you’ve made the decision you’d like a career in teaching. All that remains is for you to complete your application. Here’s what you need to do…


Option 1

First of all, sign up with UCAS (there's a £24 administration fee, and they'll handle your application). Visit the link below where you can start your application.

Apply Through UCAS

Option 2

If you don't gain a place through apply 1, you can apply, one choice at a time in the Apply 2 scheme.

Apply Through Apply 2

Things you’ll need

References

You’ll need to supply UCAS with the names of two referees. Please note, you can’t use family or friends, partners or ex-partners as referees. UCAS will let you know when they’ve received your references, which means your application can then be sent to the training provider. We reserve the right to apply for additional references when we receive your application.

 

Personal statement

Your personal statement will be used for all your applications. This needs to reflect the qualities we’re looking for, including details of your potential to teach and what you think you will bring to the profession.

Follow this link for more information, advice and guidance on how to write the most effective personal statements.


We are proud to be recognised for our achievements.
