About the course

Trainees learn on the job in a supportive environment with a mentor throughout their training. The majority of the training takes place on the 2 school placements and trainees attend 15 training days at Canterbury Christ Church University. Trainees are assessed through an ongoing system of internal and external evaluation which leads to a final assessment process. Trainees will be provided with a timetable within their subject area and work across all the Key Stages.

School placements

Secondary trainees spend the majority of their time in 1 base school. They spend a 1 month block in a comparative school and complete a shorter placement in a primary school. Primary trainees complete a second placement of 1 month in a different Key Stage or setting and complete a short placement in a secondary school in Key Stage 3.

Entry requirements

Qualifications needed

An undergraduate degree at class 2:2 or above, or equivalent.

Grade 4 (C) or above in English and maths, or equivalent qualification.

We’ll consider candidates with pending GCSEs.

We’ll consider candidates who need to take a GCSE equivalency test in English or maths.

Third party tests are accepted after agreement with the provider.

Personal qualities

Trainees ideally need some experience of life in a school.

Fees and financial support

The course fees for UK students in 2022 to 2023 are £5,960.

Interview process

Trainees are interviewed by the individual schools that are looking to train future teachers. Trainees are asked to teach a micro lesson, complete literacy and numeracy tests provided by Canterbury Christ Church University and attend an interview.

International candidates

You’ll need the right to study in the UK. You already have this if, for example, you:

  • are an Irish citizen
  • have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (you may still be able to apply)
  • have indefinite leave to remain in the UK

If you do not already have the right to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for fee-paying courses (those that you have to pay for) is the Student visa.

To apply for a Student visa, you’ll need to be sponsored by your training provider.

Sponsorship is not available for this course.

If you need a visa, filter your course search to find courses with visa sponsorship.

Alternatively, check if you’re eligible for a different type of visa, such as a Graduate or Family visa, that allows you to train to be a teacher without being sponsored.

International qualifications

If your qualifications come from a non-UK institution, we may want to see a ‘statement of comparability’ from UK ENIC. This will show us how they compare to UK qualifications.

You can call Get Into Teaching on 0800 389 2500 for:

  • guidance on the UK equivalents of your qualifications
  • a free statement of comparability once you’ve submitted your application (if we ask you for this)
