Applied for teacher training programmes? You may be able to use Apply 2...


Not holding any offers? Use Apply 2

So, what is Apply 2? Well, it’s an opportunity for you to add a new training programme if you’ve been unsuccessful or declined your original choices. You don’t need to pay another application fee, request new references, or change your personal statement (although you can create a separate version to send straight to the training provider).

Here’s how it works in five simple steps

  1. Choose a training programme that still has vacancies.
  2. Contact the training provider to make sure they’re still recruiting.
  3. Add the programme to your existing application in Track.
  4. Wait to be invited to an interview – here are some handy tips.
  5. Then, wait for a decision.

When adding a new choice in Apply 2, it’s also worth considering a different route. Last year, those who were more flexible about their choice of route were more likely to secure a place. But remember, you can only add one choice at a time.

Adding a new choice in Track? 

If you’re eligible, you’ll have the ‘Add Apply 2 Choice’ option under your original choices in Track. For more information, take a look at our guide on how to add a choice.
