Selection Process

In common with all providers of ITT, we use a variety of sources of evidence to support us in the selection of trainees.

Throughout the whole selection process we will be looking for evidence of the following:

  • Enthusiasm for your subject and for the idea of enabling children to learn and make progress in this subject
  • Strong resilience and awareness of the demands of the profession
  • A genuine interest in young people and how they learn best
  • Some ideas about what makes an effective teacher and a less effective one
  • An ability to reflect on experience
  • An ability to accept and act upon advice
  • An ability to reflect on experiences of working with young people in schools or other contexts
  • An ability to communicate with young people and engage children
