Within the application form all applicants need to provide the contact details of two referees – we recommend that you have one professional referee (ideally from your previous employer) and one academic referee, usually your university tutor. If you have spent some time in a school, it may be beneficial to have a reference from the class teacher that you worked with or the school’s Headteacher. We advise all of our applicants to speak to their referees to gain permission to use their details, and to advise them that we will be in touch to request a reference if your application is successful.
Please also make sure you include details of all your qualifications in your application (not just the statutory ones) and all employment history, not just that relating to experience in schools.
If you would like to come along and have a chat about becoming a teacher and training with us, please don’t hesitate to contact us and keep a look out for our upcoming ‘Get Into Teaching’ events on our Facebook, Twitter or Eventbrite!
International applicants – we welcome applications from anyone that is eligible to study in the UK. As a SCITT we are not eligible to register as a Tier 4 Visa Sponsor so unfortunately cannot accept applications from international students from outside the EU who don’t already have the required right to study in the UK.
Please visit the Government site Get into Teaching for more help on applying to teach in the UK.
