Are YOU ready to apply, but are struggling a bit with your personal statement?
Maybe YOU just need some final guidance around the interview process?
You’ve still plenty of time to submit your UCAS application to start your Teacher Training this September and we’re keen to make sure that YOU have the resources YOU need to apply this year. However, as the year progresses some subjects will fill their places and we’ll have to close for any more applications.
The Department for Education (DfE) Get into Teaching Events team is planning to host some FREE application workshops, where YOU will:
- have access to one to one advice from experts who will show YOU ways to maximise the impact of your application;
- be able to get feedback on your personal statement and advice around the application process.
So go to the Get into Teaching website and register for your nearest Application Workshop in Yorkshire.
- 2nd Apr – 5.30pm – 8pm, Hull, Holiday Inn Hull Marina
- 1st May – 5.30pm – 8pm, York, Park Inn by Radisson York City Centre
- 18th May – 10am – 12.30pm, Leeds, Park Plaza Leeds City Centre
Or if you’re a career changer looking to get into teaching then perhaps go to the Transition to Teach website and apply for additional support with your application.
Then when you’re ready to apply, go to the DfE’s ‘Find a Postgraduate Teacher Training Course’, choose the Doncaster ITT Partnership and two others from Teach Yorkshire , then link through to UCAS to apply.
Make your application STAND OUT!
Good luck with your applications!

Worried about taking the Skills Tests?
Do you feel that you need extra help and advice before taking the Numeracy or Literacy Skills Tests?
Remember whilst you can do the on-line practice tests as many times as you like, you only have three attempts at passing each of the actual tests and will have to wait for 2-years before you can retake them, if you fail on the third attempt!
Several of our current and former trainees have used on-line help/practice websites and the one most recommend for helping them pass their Numeracy test is: Numeracy Ready although there are other websites, publications and on-line resources which may help if you feel that you need additional support.
We’re planning to deliver some training sessions early in the Spring Term and will let applicants who have been offered places know the dates of these. We also get a 20% discount for ‘Numeracy Ready’ so can pass that on to applicants who have accepted a place with us.
So make sure you’re ready to take the test BEFORE you book in at a test centre.
