How to apply
Applications for teacher training are made via UCAS. Our reference code is 1JD.
Applications are made on the UCAS website. You will be able to search courses from 10 October 2016 and apply from 18 October 2016. You can select 3 choices at the same time under Apply 1 for any route into teaching. Once your application is submitted training providers have 40 working days to make a decision and inform you. If interested providers will call you for interview so be prepared to have 3 full days of interviews in this 40 day period. You then have 10 days to make a decision whether to accept one of the offers or not.
If you do not get a place in Apply 1 or you declined your offers, you can then apply in the Apply 2 round which starts in November 2016. In Apply 2 you can make an unlimited number of choices, but only one at a time.
