What will happen to my Application?

Once you apply, if your application is short-listed**:

Primary – you will be asked to select areas of the Borough that you would prefer to be trained in, if you have a preference. Then Partner schools in that area(s) will consider your application and hopefully contact you to arrange a visit to a school* to discuss your application or invite you to attend an interview.

Secondary – applicants that schools wish to consider will be contacted by a Partner school and invited in for interview.

*The school that contacts you may only be hosting interviews, so may not be the same school that you would train in, if you are subsequently offered a place.

Please note we are not able to use the ‘Interview’ stage on the UCAS system as our Partner schools and academies will arrange individual interviews themselves, so your application may still be shown as ‘Referred’, but actually may still be being considered by schools.

Please see our Blog post on ‘Hotmail’ as you may be missing an email from us or a school with important information -i.e. an invitation to interview.

All ‘Offers’ will show as ‘Conditional’ as they are subject to the usual clearances and checks, but will be changed to ‘Unconditional’ once all these (inc. the DBS checks and Skills Tests etc.) have been completed.

If you’re not sure what’s happening email us: ittpartnership@doncaster.gov.uk

**On behalf of the schools, if your application is not short-listed – it will be ‘Rejected’ on UCAS by the Partnership.

Are you considering a ‘career change’?

The NCTL advisory service is to encourage second year undergraduates and career changers who want to teach a ‘priority subject’, but are not ready to apply this recruitment year.

The NCTL has recruited a number of specialist advisers who will provide a dedicated one-to-one support service, which aims to help candidates to chose the right teaching route, providing help and support with their ‘application journey’.

To access this service, please register with the Get into Teaching site

Good luck with your applications!

Hotmail? University email?

If you have a Hotmail or a similar web-based email account, please note that we would ask you to set our email (ittpartnership@doncaster.gov.uk) to a ‘trusted’ or ‘secure’ email address to avoid emails from us being pushed into your ‘trash’ or ‘junk’ mail folder.

This often happens when we send out ‘bulk’ emails to large numbers of applicants, especially if we’ve included an attachment, as understandably we can’t always send out individual emails to each applicant.

Every year applicants with Hotmail and similar accounts fail to receive important emails from us because of their email settings.

Also if you’re using a University email, please remember that we may not be able to contact you once you’ve left Uni and the email closes, so preferably please use a ‘home’ email – and let us know if you change your email provider.

So to make sure that we can contact you and send you the latest information, please make sure that your application has your correct email address and then check that your email settings will receive emails from the Doncaster ITT Partnership.

Good luck with your applications!
