Please check the Entry Requirements before you apply.
How do I apply?
Applications are made on the UCAS website. The Apply 1 round is opened now. You can select 3 choices at the same time for any route into teaching. Once your application is submitted training providers have 40 working days to make a decision and inform you. If interested providers will call you for interview so be prepared to have 3 full days of interviews in this 40 day period. You then have 10 days to make a decision whether to accept one of the offers or not.
If you do not get a place in Apply 1 or you declined your offers, you can then apply in the Apply 2 round which starts in January 2017. In Apply 2 you can make an unlimited number of choices, but only one at a time.
How can I get School Experience?
Gaining classroom experience before starting your initial teacher training (ITT) can help you to be sure that a career in teaching is right for you. It also supports your application for ITT. Try contacting schools to ask if you can visit, or make use of the School Experience Programme.
