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.

This exclusive service is available to you if you’re looking to teach secondary biology, geography, maths, physics, chemistry, computing or languages.

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.

To be eligible for the service you need to hold (or be predicted) a 2:2 degree or above and want to start training in September 2016.

There’s also support available if you want to start teacher training in 2017. If you’re a second-year undergraduate or looking to change career, call us on Freephone 0800 389 2500 or register online to find out how we can help you.

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. 

Premier Plus supports candidates who want to teach secondary biology, geography, maths, physics, chemistry, languages or computing

Benefit from exclusive, free support if you have a 2:2 or higher and want to teach a Premier Plus subject – all subjects also offer tax-free bursaries to eligible candidates
