There are several stages you need to consider in order to make a successful application for teacher training. You’ll need to find the right school(s) or university to lead your training, arrange references for your written application, spend some time in one or more schools, pass skills tests and successfully interview for a position. Once you’re ready to apply, you can do this via the UCAS Teacher Training site for the majority of postgraduate courses, with the site now open for applications to train to teach in the 2015/16 academic year. We’re here to support you with help and advice every step of the way – and you can use this site to log your progress and plan your next steps.
