Note that you apply through UCAS Teacher Training for this course.
In order to ensure that their decision is informed and has been carefully considered, and to demonstrate a commitment to teaching, it is desirable for candidates to have spent some time visiting a primary classroom to become familiar with the demands and expectations of primary teaching. A minimum of two weeks in a primary setting will be a requirement prior to commencement of the course.
Applicants starting initial teacher training courses from September 2013 need to pass the Literacy and Numeracy Skills tests before starting their course to ensure they can be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
You may book your skills tests as soon as you have made an application via UCAS Teacher Training. Applicants who have already passed their skills tests at the time of interview will be looked upon favourably. Find out more.
