PERSONAL STATEMENT & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
When you apply you will be asked to give us details of your educational background and to provide a personal statement. We will be looking for evidence that your specialist subject knowledge is both broad and deep as well as being up-to-date. You need to show that you are taking the application seriously and that you have visited or plan to visit secondary schools – and not just your old school. Some evidence of working with young people, as a Teaching Assistant, Student Ambassador, youth worker, etc. will help your application. We are looking for applicants who are able to work closely and effectively with other teachers and who can inspire young people to bring out the best in themselves. As such, good communication skills and a confident and caring personality are an advantage.
For details about governement training bursaries, please see the relevant subject specific prospectus entry, e.g. Mathematics.
There is no deadline for applications but in view of the stiff competition for places it is advisable to apply early in the academic year. You may meet all the criteria but preference will be given to candidates in whom we can identify greater potential.
