We consider a wide range of evidence to judge applicants’ suitability to train to teach. This will include:

  • Information from application forms, including the personal statement.
  • The quality of spelling, grammar and punctuation within the application.
  • Relevant references.
  • References should be either professional (from an employer or recent previous employer) or academic (either from a recognised academic institution in which you studied, or one in which you have worked or volunteered). References should include a professional email address. 

All applications for entry onto our teacher training programme must be made through the DfE Apply system.
