Applying through UCAS

All applications to CTSN SCITT are made through UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service), which you probably used when applying for your first degree.

Before making your application through UCAS it is worth considering the following points:

  1. You will have to write a personal statement to support your application.  This should mention why you are interested in becoming a teacher, and what relevant experience you have for the role.
  2. In order to do this, it will help if you were able to visit a school and observe some learning and teaching in action.  this will also give you something relevant to talk about should you be called for interview.  Please contact CTSN SCITT if you need help in arranging this
  3. You will also need two professional referees; at least one of these ought to be able to comment on your suitability and skills in working with children and one, particularly for secondary, might also deal with your relevant subject qualifications.  For recent graduates, it would be useful to have one reference from a university tutor and one from someone who can comment, in a professional capacity, on any school experience that you might have arranged  as part of the application process; or from other experiences you have of working with children. preferably in the age range for which you are applying to teach.  This might be from  some form of youth work, tutoring, or sports coaching, etc.

You will also need to know the correct UCAS code for the course/s for which you wish to apply.  You can find these on the UCAS site, but it might be quicker to get the course codes here (see below) before you go to the UCAS site.

Primary Course Codes

primary codes 201920 v2It is the same course, whichever Teaching school appliance you apply through, and all of them will allow you to attend core training in either Cambridge or Bury St Edmunds.   However, it would make sense to apply to the Teaching School Alliance/s most local to you.  Remember, you can apply for three different ITT routes, so you can apply to three of the CTSN partner schools.  This link explains hw to navigate UCAS and what course codes you might look out for
