Premier Plus

Premier Plus is a free service that provides you with additional support when preparing and applying for teacher training. You’ll get your own dedicated adviser, an experienced teaching professional who knows the teacher training process inside out, who is on hand to give you any extra help you need.

Your Premier Plus adviser will:

  • give you practical advice and guidance at each stage of your application, from writing your personal statement to preparing for interviews and skills tests
  • help you arrange your school experience via our School Experience Programme
  • provide information about any financial support you may be entitled to

Whatever support you need, your adviser will be just a phone call, text or email away.

Please note: qualifying for Premier Plus based on your overseas equivalent degree class does not determine or guarantee what bursary rate you would be eligible for.
