If your qualifications are not UK awarded you will need an ENIC statement of comparability to show that they are equivalent to the entry requirements listed.

Prior experience in a school is not required. However, where candidates have been able to gain experience in schools, this might be helpful to understand the role of a teacher and will help you at interview. Please note, your application would not be rejected because you have not gained school experience.

As a Safer Recruitment provider, our robust safeguarding practices are in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education (2021). Please note you will be asked to bring 2 forms of ID with you, one of which must be photographic. If you do not have the required ID then the interview cannot take place. Successful applicants are required to undertake the enhanced Disclosure and Barring check, and complete a medical health questionnaire which may be subject to an occupational health referral. This will be arranged by High Force Education. Any offer of a place on the course is conditional to meeting the entry requirements.
