Teacher Training: Three things to consider before you apply


1. Choose the right training programme

There are a few different postgraduate teacher training routes in England and Wales. Although training programmes in England and Wales are broadly similar, the routes available, eligibility, and funding options may vary. Watch our video on the different routes into teaching to see which one is the right fit for you. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to search for some training providers!

2.  Search for courses

You can find all postgraduate teacher training programmes that have vacancies in the UCAS Teacher Training search tool. Once you hit the search button, click the name of the training programme to find more details, such as entry requirements, to establish if it matches your qualifications. 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.

3. When to apply

You can register and apply for 2019 postgraduate teacher training places in England and Wales from 09 October 2018. Many programmes open immediately, but not all do - more will become available later, so keep a look out! Some training providers will have a limited number of places available, so make sure you don't leave your application to the last minute.
