Follow these steps before making an application:
Prepare your application by checking you have the following information ready:
Candidates are advised to have this information to hand before completing their application and also to prepare their referees for the reference request as delays in completion of references can be very time consuming.
You will also be required to submit a personal statement. As there is considerable competition for places, we recommend that you spend some time writing, drafting and checking this before submitting your application.
The UCAS system allows you to save and manage your draft applications, and store copies of your submitted applications for your reference.
You can apply for School Direct places at up to three schools initially in Apply 1.
You will be able to apply to further schools in Apply 2 if any of your initial applications are unsuccessful.
NB. If you are applying for a place on the Salaried School Direct Training Programme you will also be required to detail your employment history as evidence that you meet the three years’ work experience requirement.
You will also be required to take the numeracy and literacy professional skills tests as part of the application process, and ensure you have passed them both before the start of the course.
