You can search and apply for training programmes starting in 2018 now.

Scottish training programmes are available through our undergraduate scheme. 

  • There’s quite a bit to fill in, but you don’t need to do it all at once – you can save your application and sign back in at any time.
  • There’s an overview below of what you’ll need to do, and there’s step-by-step advice in the Apply system.
  • You will not be able to submit your application until both references are complete – to speed up the process, contact your referees ahead of time.
  • You can only apply once in a cycle. Please don't apply more than once in a cycle, as you can't receive a refund for further applications. If you've applied in previous cycles and want to apply again, you'll have to submit a new application.
  • When adding your choices to your application, double check the availability of the programmes – you don't want to waste your time applying to programmes without spaces!

For training programmes in Wales, you can apply in Welsh.

Useful documents

  • If you've got a question about completing your application, read through the UCAS Teacher Training FAQs for advice.
  • You can use some European characters in your personal details, personal statement, employment and referee details. Some training providers will not view these characters correctly — check the Extended character sets substitution list to see the character substituted in its place.
