If you haven’t applied, you can submit an application up until 15 September, but there are a few things to consider before you apply through either of these routes.

Choosing the right training programme

There are a few different training programmes available. Check out the different routes into teaching and see which one is the right fit for you.

Vacancies

Search for all programmes that have vacancies in our search tool. Even if the programme you’re interested has vacancies listed, it’s always worth ringing the training provider just to make sure that they can consider your application.
