After The Interview

Applicants are notified of the outcome of their application within approximately 72 hours of the interview.

If you have already passed the Skills Tests and have met all the other criteria, you will be offered an unconditional place. 

Alternatively we may make a conditional offer if you are subject to completing a further requirement such as passing the skills tests, completing your degree, attending a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course, or gaining some further experience in a school context.  It is possible for you to accept conditional offers on the UCAS system; you do not need to wait until the requirement has been met.
All places will be subject to receipt of a satisfactory enhanced-level disclosure obtained from the Disclosure and Barring Service.   All places on this programme are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
All applicants should have ensured they can secure sufficient funding to support themselves for the training year prior to accepting a place. The intensive nature of the school  based training programmes means trainees will not have the capacity to work whilst training.
It is a Government requirement that all students should be medically fit - both mentally and physically - to enter the teaching profession.

Placement Schools

Once our offer has been accepted we aim to let you know your placement school as soon as possible.  In deciding where to place you we take into consideration where you live (or will be living when the course starts) and whether you can drive as well as ensuring the placement school provides the best environment to meet the your needs.  Please be aware that you will need to meet the placement school and both parties need to be happy before the placement can be confirmed. 

In addition, all decisions on placement schools are subject to confirmation after 31st May as we have to ensure that Departments have the correct staffing in place to adequately support a trainee teacher.

Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses are available in the following subjects: Maths, the Sciences, Computing, Languages, Design & Technology, English and Geography.  SKE courses are funded by the NCTL and are usually done online.  There are various lengths of course and we will let you know how long your course needs to be.  You are free to chose your own provider subject to our approval.

DBS Certificate

All successful candidates will be required to apply for and receive a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate.  This will take place in June prior to starting the ITT course in September. 

Any trainee who has been resident overseas for more than twelve months in the preceding 10 years must also provide a police certificate from the country in which they were resident.
