All applicants need to provide details of two referees; UCAS Teacher Training obtains each reference as part of the application process.

If you are currently at university or have gained a degree in the past five years:

  • One reference must be from someone at your university who can comment on your academic ability and potential as a teacher.
  • The second reference can be from someone who knows you from work or can comment on your character and potential to be a teacher.

Once the application has been received and processed by UCAS, it is made available online for us to consider.

Fraudulent Applications

All applications are checked against the UCAS database for fraud, and personal statements are vetted through their similarity detection device. If you omit any compulsory information, we reserve the right to withdraw or to amend our offer.

Criminal Record Disclosure

An Enhanced Disclosure Check is required for entry into initial teacher education and training. UCAS asks applicants to confirm that they agree to a check by the UK Disclosure and Barring Service. The application also requires applicants to disclose any spent or unspent convictions, or any past criminal activities.


 "The SCITT route emerged with the best overall score, mainly due to the very favourable ratings from newly qualified teachers and impressive teaching take-up."
