There are various loans/grants/ bursaries that you may be eligible for. Please contact us directly for further information.
Check Essential criteria for any route:
For BPSCITT and Non-Salaried routes, apply through UCAS/DFE from October for the following academic year. We accept applications up to June each year (subject to availability).
For Salaried School Direct, you must have at least three years teaching experience and be working in a school willing to support your direct salaried route. Please contact us to apply.
To apply for Assessment Only QTS you should be teaching in a school with a timetable equivalent to that of a teacher. Please contact Laura Whitty for more information. We currently work with schools throughout the South East, London and Midlands area for AO. You can apply for AO at any stage throughout the year.
Throughout the year we run Teacher Taster Days for those people who are thinking about becoming a teacher and would like to learn more about the course and profession.
During the day, you will have the opportunity to meet the SCITT team, a current trainee, a newly qualified teacher and to observe a lesson in one of our partnership schools.
There will also be sessions on course structure, student finance and bursaries. Please contact the office if you would like to attend.
Applications for teacher training opened in October and we will continue interviewing until June or until our courses are full.
In order to make an application, you will need to write a personal statement and supply two references. Please use the following links to help you with these:
It is worth noting that you cannot submit your application form until both references have been completed so make sure that you ask for these in plenty of time.
Once received, and if we would like to call you to interview, we will confirm this in an e-mail to you and via the application portal (UCAS or DFE)
Decisions regarding any conditional offers will normally be made within 24 hours of your interview and will be shared with you via the application portal (UCAS or DFE). Please contact the office for further queries.
