Interview process

The interview process is conducted by Bromley Schools’ Collegiate, senior leaders in relevant schools and the Education Teaching Alliance Lewisham (ETAL) Teaching School Lead.

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)

Training with disabilities and other needs

Equality of opportunity for all sections of our community and workforce is an essential value for LB Lewisham. Everyone has a role to play in ensuring fairness towards colleagues and the community. Showing that we value all staff, providing everyone with what they need to do a good job, creating opportunities to develop new skills and progress within our schools, are all important ways of demonstrating equal opportunities in practice. Our policies are designed to set a framework for schools to do this. Teachers and trainees with disabilities or from diverse communities, make an important contribution to schools both in the classroom and in shaping the wider culture and ethos of the schools they work in. Our schools value and promote diversity and the unique contribution that all their staff and trainees bring. It is a personal choice if you wish to inform a school about your disability. The advantage of disclosure is that it enables support and reasonable adjustments to be put in place. All schools campuses are different but all have an Accessibility Plan. Please contact individual schools for more information.
