To get a head start before UCAS Teacher Training applications open, you should:

  • register with us to receive support from our experienced teachers, so you’ll be able to make a successful application when UCAS applications open; when you register you’ll also be able to book local train to teach events
  • start preparing your personal statement, here you should make sure you demonstrate the great qualities you have that would make you an effective teacher, highlighting any experience you’ve had with children, which could include relevant school experience you’ve gained
  • consider your two references needed for your application, let them know in advance they’ve been selected as you can’t submit your application without these
  • search for available teacher training courses in your area; the search tool doesn’t open until early October, but you could search via Google to identify teacher training providers in your area
  • practice completing the mandatory skills test in numeracy and literacy - the key to successfully passing is plenty of preparation and practice, but don’t worry you’ve got unlimited attempts at passing

To support you when you train there’s a number of funding options available. To note: the information displayed on this website is for trainees starting this year, updated information for 2019/20 will be available soon, but it should give you an idea on what to expect - register with us and we’ll make sure you’re kept up to date with the latest announcements.
