This year we will be offering a SEND route. When completing your application please make it clear whether you would like to apply for Primary General or Primary General (SEN Specialism). The route you choose will need to be reflected in your personal statement when completing the application.
Interviews will be conducted by the programme lead as well as senior colleagues from partner schools.
Candidates will be expected to take part in a group discussion, give a presentation to the recruitment panel, lead a short pupil group activity and undertake a written and numeracy task.
Normally only one interview is needed.
How school placements work
Students spend most of their year (20 weeks) in a "home school", with additional experiences in two contrasting primary schools or a special school for those opting to take the SEND route offered (two periods of eight weeks each).
All host schools are rated as good or outstanding.
Candidates will be expected to provide their own transport to their placements, some of which are in rural locations.
