Event info:

This event offers friendly, personalised advice from experts to support all those interested in primary Initial Teacher Training. It will consist of a presentation outlining all the different routes available to candidates.

Information, support and advice about the application and interview processes will be a key part of the presentation, with plenty of opportunities for all delegates to ask questions.

As a result of attending the evening, all applicants should have a much clearer understanding of:

  • the different routes into Initial Teacher Training (including University, SCITT and School Direct routes) and which route might suit them best
  • the next steps they need to take to successfully apply for ITT
  • how to gain and use pre-course experience in schools to start their training in as strong a position as possible

Suitable candidates may be offered opportunities to gain pre-interview/course experience in SCITT or School Direct alliance partner schools.
