Entry Requirements


Please note that all offers are conditional and subject to the satisfactory outcome of a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and health check. These checks will be completed by the university with whom you complete your teacher training, if you are a tuition fee trainee, and by the school at which you complete your teacher training, if you are a salaried trainee.  

Salaried places represent a significant commitment from the host school to fund training, salary and associated benefits, such as pension contributions. For this reason, schools will take care to select candidates, who they feel have a level of maturity (irrespective of age) to operate as a responsible member of staff.

Non-UK Qualifications
