What happens next?

Once we’ve received your application, we’ll send you a welcome email.

  • This will contain your Personal ID and username for our online system Track, where you can follow the progress of your application.
  • Your application will be sent to your chosen training providers online, normally within 24 hours.
  • In Apply 1, your application will be sent to all your chosen providers to be considered at the same time.
  • After you have submitted your application, and received your UCAS Teacher Training application welcome letter, you’ll need to book your professional skills tests with learndirect. In England, you need to pass the professional skills tests in numeracy and literacy before you begin your teacher training. Find out more in our professional skills tests blog.

One key thing to note is that you do not have to reply until you have received all your offers. When you do have all your offers, you’ll have ten working days to reply – this must be done in Track.

Communications from your chosen training provider

After you send your application, here are the types of communications you can expect from your chosen training provider:

  • You should get an acknowledgement that the training provider has received your application.
  • Training providers may request additional information from you. This could include:
    • a completed online Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) form
    • additional ID and a photo
    • further details of your work and/or voluntary experience
    • qualification certificates
    • predicted grades
  • If a training provider requests additional information, they’ll let you know why and when they need it.
  • After they’ve considered your application, the training provider should let you know:
    • whether they’ll provide feedback, positive or negative, and at what stage, or whether you’ll need to request it
    • how feedback will be provided
  • Training providers may have additional policies that could impact their ability to honour their offer – for example, if you breach their fitness to practice policy. Where these policies operate, you should have access to this information. If an offer is withdrawn under these circumstances, providers should be clear about why the decision has been taken.
  • Your training provider should have a clear appeals and complaints procedure, which should be freely available.

Cancellations

You can cancel a choice or your whole application.

  • If it's just one choice you'd like to withdraw, do this in Track (as long as the training provider hasn't sent us its decision yet).
  • If you’ve changed your mind about applying to teacher training, you can cancel your application and get a refund. Please note, UCAS Teacher Training will only refund applications cancelled within 14 days of being submitted to us, so please check the date in your welcome email to verify this.
  • If you are cancelling within 14 days of submitting your application and would like a refund, please call us. If you're unable to call us, complete and return our UCAS Teacher Training cancellation form (37.54 KB) 
  • You will not receive a refund if you withdraw your application in Track.
  • If it’s been more than 14 days since you submitted your application, you can still withdraw it in Track at any time. But no refund will be issued.
