In summary; Skills, Knowledge, Experience, Passion!
Our programmes have different academic qualification requirements depending on the phase you wish to teach and subject specialisms. A GCSE, at least a Grade C, is required in both English and Maths for all programmes. A relevant degree is required for every programme. Do look at our programme pages for the specific entry requirements for the programme that you are interested in.
You will also need to make arrangements to sit the Professional Skills Tests. We are unable to make offers unconditional until these have been passed.
Your skills, qualities and passion
We’re looking for you to demonstrate your skills, qualities and passion. Relate these to teaching wherever possible in your application form.
We are looking for you to tell us about your reflections on recent school experience. How did your experience cement the choice of teaching as a career? What did you learn about yourself and your skills?
If you also have other relevant experience, do tell us about your reflections on it.
Please choose your two referees carefully. Your referees need to know you sufficiently well to be able to comment your suitability for teaching. If you have been in education in the last five years, one of your referees should be an academic one. Further guidance on referees can be found here.
Please explain any gaps in your work experience history.
