For the 2019/20 academic year applicants will be able to use the new DfE search tool ‘Find Postgraduate Teacher Training’ to search for courses prior to applying through UCAS Teacher Training.
For the 2019/20 academic year we hope to recruit twenty eight secondary physical education SCITT trainees and twelve primary with a PE specialism School Direct trainees.

The UCAS system will automatically forward applications to the programme team who will send an email acknowledging receipt. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview day at one of the partnership schools; these days will consist of a group task, a literacy task, a teaching episode and a formal interview. The interview panel will comprise representatives from the partnership schools. You will be notified through UCAS of the outcome of your interview.
