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 who need to take a GCSE equivalency test in English or maths.

Other requirements

All suitable applicants will be interviewed and any offer of a place will be subject to receiving DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and medical clearance.

Fees and financial support

The course fees for UK students in 2022 to 2023 are £9,250.

Financial support from the training provider

A Connolly Foundation bursary of £1000 will be available for any trainee who is accepted onto our Redborne School Direct programme. A further £1000 NQT bursary will be granted to the trainee following their successful completion of the Redborne School Direct programme, and if they secure a first teaching post in a Bedfordshire school.

About the training provider

Redborne Upper School and Community College is the Lead School for the Redborne Teaching School Alliance (RTSA), School Direct programme.

Our School Direct programme has been running since 2012 and includes primary and secondary phases. Our partnership of schools includes a large number of lower, middle and upper schools across Central Bedfordshire.

Interview process

The interview process should take approximately six hours and will consist of a visit to Redborne to meet the School Direct team followed by a formal interview process at the University of Bedfordshire’s, Bedford Campus.

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)
