Selection Process

Our aim is to invite applicants who have the talent, commitment and enthusiasm to become outstanding Primary teachers.

Early application is recommended. Interviews for recruitment to September 2022 courses will take place from November 2021 to June 2022. Following your application, shortlisting will take place to invite appropriate candidates to interview. 

Interviews last a full day and are held in one of our schools, where candidates will be observed working with groups of children. During the interview, the interviewers will have an informed discussion with candidates on teaching and learning, subject knowledge and the relevant curriculum and previous school and/or setting experience. The interviews will also explore your commitment and potential to become a teacher, including your professionalism and ability to manage the challenges and pressures of the course.
