Your personal statement is your opportunity to showcase your passion and enthusiasm for wanting to become a teacher. You will also need to include any relevant experience in educational settings. We believe teachers represent their subject; you must outline your knowledge of your chosen subject specialism or phase.
Two references are required to apply for teacher training; you will not be able to submit your application until both references are complete, therefore allow plenty of time for this process.
The interview process is a time for discussion about our School Direct programme and to evaluate your potential to become an excellent trainee teacher with the Outwood Institute of Education.
It is essential you bring the following documents on the day:
We recommend that you complete at least three days in a school environment. The Outwood Institute of Education can organise these placements for you as part of the application process. Please contact us to arrange this.
(Please note you do not have to have this experience at the time of submitting your application but this does have to be completed before you start the programme)
