Applications for this
programme are made via DfE
Please ensure when submitting your application form that you are available for interview during the 40 day turnaround time following the submission of your application form. DfE stipulate for all training providers to make a decision on applications within 40 working days. If you are not able to attend your interview during this period we will be unable to make a decision and therefore DfE will reject your application by default. If you are unable to attend interview until after the 40 day period, and your application is rejected by default, you will need to re-apply. If you have any concerns about this process email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All short-listed applicants are invited to an
interview. You'll be sent an article to read beforehand, as well as
suggestions for further research on a current topic, such as phonics. On the day
there will be a presentation to give you information about the PGCE programme and an opportunity for you to ask questions. You'll be involved in a group
discussion about the article and have a paired interview with a tutor on the
PGCE course. We are looking for people who can talk about educational issues
and children's learning, drawing on their own personal experiences as a learner
and on their observations of teachers in primary schools. There is also an
audit of your English and maths skills with a short test. At the end of the
process, we want you to be clear what the programme offers, what you can expect
from us and what our expectations are of you.
