The required qualifications for entry onto ITT courses are:
'O' Level/GCSE A-C pass grade/new grade Level 4 - 9 in English & Mathematics (and Science for Primary applicants). See note 1.
A degree classification of 2:2 or better is required. For Secondary courses this ideally needs to be in an area relevant to the subject in which you will be training. See note 2.
Other qualifications and personal experiences of working with young people, strengthen all applications considerably.
KMT look for evidence of:
(1) KMT will advise potential applicants concerning any equivalency tests where required
(2) Subject relevant experience may be taken into account where the degree does not meet this requirement
KMT is not in a position to accept applications from non-EU citizens who do not meet the residency requirements to receive public funding.
KMT is not able to proceed with a registration for the School Direct Salaried Programme from those not currently holding residency status in the UK, unless that registration is completed in conjunction with one of our consortium schools.
All applicants to KMT must have recent experience of UK schools before starting their course. It is also highly recommended that some experience be gained during the application stage, as it will strengthen both applications and interview discussions. KMT School Direct Lead Schools and their partners will always be willing to offer school observational experience. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need to gain observational experience.
