Applications for initial teacher training (ITT) courses starting in 2014 are made via a system administered by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

UCAS Teacher Training is the new portal through which you can apply for postgraduate ITT, including university-led and school-led routes such as the School Direct Training Programme.  

Before making your application you should register with us online, or on freephone 0800 389 2500. You will receive a tailored programme of advice and updates to help you make the best application you can. 

We have a range of helpful tools and tips to support you through the application process, and advice on which route into teaching will be best suited to you. We can also assist you in acquiring school experience, offer support in taking the mandatory skills tests and explain the financial support available.

Before applying, you may wish to check the number of training places being offered for each course you are interested in. Please be aware also that the School Direct Training Programme (salaried) was heavily over-subscribed last year. The allocation finder spreadsheet (Excel, 329KB) will help you find the places allocated to courses in which you are interested.
