Applying for our programme

All our applicants need to apply via UCAS. To select us as a provider applicants need to search for AA Teamworks West Yorkshire SCITT, with the institution code 2AT. If you are using the DFE Find service we are also there under our full name.

Within the UCAS form all applicants need to provide the details of two references – 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, but also to give them some advance notice that the reference will be required as this can take some time and hold up your application.

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.
