Applied for teacher training programmes? Not got the offer you want?


If one of your chosen training providers was not able to offer you a place, don’t worry.

Wait to hear back from all your choices

If you applied to more than one training provider on your UCAS Teacher Training application, you may still be waiting to hear back from your other choices.

Remember, training providers have up to 40 days to consider your application and make a decision. During this time, your remaining choices may also invite you to interview. While you’re waiting, find out more about what training providers look for and what they may ask.

Not holding an offer? Use Apply 2…

Once you’ve heard back from all your choices, if you still haven’t got an offer, don’t panic. Apply 2 is your opportunity to add another choice.

The good news is you don’t need to re-apply in order to use Apply 2. You don’t need to pay another application fee, request new references, or change your personal statement. You just need to find a programme with places and add it to your application.

Martin Cowan found a teacher training place through Apply 2 and says, “Don’t worry if you’ve had no offers, Apply 2 simply follows on from Apply 1, and I was successful during this stage”

Get up-to-speed with how Apply 2 works, just in case!
