Application Advice

When completing your application, remember to follow the UCAS guidelines. If you completed academic study within the last 5 years, one of your referees must be an academic tutor. You must include a reference from your current employment or voluntary work placement - ideally somebody who can vouch for your suitability to teach.  

The work experience/history section of the application must be comprehensive, detailing all of your work history. This must include all employed or voluntary school roles, as well as other work. All gaps in between roles must be accounted for. 

Ensuring applications are correctly completed helps to speed up the process through shortlisting, as we will request missing information which will delay proceedings. 

If your application is successful, you'll be invited to an interview at one of our Aspire schools. You'll be observed leading an activity with a group of children, write a written reflection of your activity and complete a formal interview.
