What if I have not obtained all my qualifications yet?

It is not a requirement that all qualifications are in place prior to application or interview. However, you will need to ensure your application clearly indicates any qualifications you are yet to take, or receive results for, and the timeframe for securing these.


What if I have not had experience in school yet?

It is not a requirement that you secure school experience prior to application or interview. However, please ensure we highly recommend that you do secure some school experience prior to taking the decision to train to teach. We can support you in arranging a short placement and can discuss this with you before or during the interview.

How do I provide references?

You are required to provide contact details for two referees who are willing to provide strong support for your application.

We strongly recommend you notify referees early. If referees are on holiday or choose not to respond it will delay your application process.
