Entry requirements

A degree awarded in the UK or by an approved university outside the UK, or an equivalent qualification. In addition, candidates must hold GCSE English language and mathematics (grade C or above) or approved equivalents. The graduate subject is normally expected to be in the area, or an acceptable allied area, to which entry is sought. Candidates who have successfully completed an approved degree in science are welcomed. Mature students with work experience and such graduates are invited to apply. Candidates should ensure that some time is spent observing in UK State secondary schools before making an application. All students starting an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course in September 2013 are required to pass the Professional Skills tests in literacy and numeracy before the start of the programme. Students should submit an application as early as possible via the GTTR (applications open early October) and then make arrangements to take the skills tests. It is strongly advised that students take the tests as soon as they are able. If offered an interview, having already passed the tests will greatly improve students� chances of being offered a place.
