Candidates are encouraged to advise us of any special needs before the interview day to help prepare for their visit.

Details of the interview process will be sent if you have been successful at shortlisting.

Proof of identity and right to work in the UK

You will be asked to bring photographic and residency evidence to the interview day to confirm true identity. This will then be used to complete your DBS check in the summer term before the programme starts

For those applicants who are offered a place, it will be conditional on the following elements:

  • Health check to ascertain fitness to teach;
  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks;
  • Evidence of all qualifications.


Applications for this course are handled via UCAS.


It is an excellent course that prepares you well for the practical aspects of teaching. The course is very well run and managed and the mentor system is especially good.
