Selection Day

Covid-19 update

Due to the impact of Covid-19, all of our recruitment has moved online which means our selection days look slightly different.

If your application is shortlisted you will be invited to a virtual selection day. You will take part in a number of tasks including: delivering a presentation, completing a reading exercise, and attending an interview. We will provide you with information on what tasks you will be asked to complete and guidance on what we are looking for in each prior to your selection day. 

You will have the opportunity to ask questions and meet members of our teaching team. We aim to provide you with a decision within one week of your selection day and offer feedback on your performance. You will be notified initially through UCAS and, if you are successful, with a follow-up email outlining any conditions that we have set and any next steps.

Subject knowledge enhancement

Occasionally, it may be set as a condition of your offer that you will need to complete a subject knowledge enhancement course (SKE) prior to starting your training with us. This is quite common if your degree is not in the subject you would like to teach and we feel you need to increase your subject knowledge. This could be a specific course or module that you are asked to complete, or a series of tasks and activities put together by our expert course leads.


Any offer made is conditional upon all safeguarding checks being completed. This includes suitability for working with children, and all other DBS checks being carried out. In addition to all safeguarding checks applicants will be required to undertake a health and capacity to teach check.
