Interview process

  • This is a postgraduate teaching apprenticeship. You must have been given this code to apply by your employing school. You cannot apply for this course if you do not have an employing school to support your apprenticeship. * At Yorkshire and Humber School Direct we believe that our children deserve the very best teachers and therefore our selection process is rigorous. It consists of four elements:

  • interview

  • taught session

  • grammar & arithmetic test

  • written task

These four elements combine to allow us to assess your potential to train to teach with Yorkshire and Humber Teacher Training. The interview allows us to get to know you as a person, your interests and rationale for applying. The taught session enables you to show you natural flair and how you interact with children. The written task and the grammar & arithmetic tests will demonstrate your abilities in these essential skills.

International candidates

You’ll need the right to work 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 work in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for salaried courses is the Skilled Worker visa.

To apply for a Skilled Worker visa you need to be sponsored by your employer.

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.
