- All applicants are required on entry to their teacher-training programme to hold an appropriate UK degree or equivalent qualification.
- You must hold GCSE grade 4 or C (or above) passes in English Language and Mathematics (or equivalent).
Any offers made are conditional on confirmation in writing from the University that any health requirements which may apply from time to time have been met.
In addition, all candidates must have undergone the relevant criminal record checks as shown by receipt of a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
You will also complete a criminal convictions self-disclosure. This is an interim measure and is retained until the University has receipt of the full Enhanced Disclosure from the DBS.
Professional Skills Tests
All students must pass the Professional Skills Tests in Literacy and Numeracy before beginning the course. These tests cover the core skills that teachers need to fulfil their professional role in schools, rather than the subject knowledge required for teaching. They do not replace the GCSE grade C (or equivalent) entry requirements in English language and mathematics.
The tests are set in the context of the professional role of a teacher and the questions use real data and information that teachers are likely to encounter. They are computerised and can be taken at approximately 150 test centres throughout the UK.
