School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)

The application process

Applications for the Peninsula Teacher Training Cornwall SCITT programme are open as of Tuesday 27th October 2015

Apply online through the UCAS Teacher Training website

There is a single admission system for SCITT, University and School Direct Initial Teacher Training programmes which is managed by UCAS and called UCAS Teacher Training. All applications for postgraduate Initial Teacher Training need to be made through UCAS via their online application system. For more information and to apply please follow the link above to the UCAS Teacher Training site or look at the videos below.

If you are wanting to apply to us please refer to the UCAS Course and Institution codes listed on the Spaces Available page to help you to find the appropriate Peninsula SCITT programme on UCAS.

A note regarding references:

Please ensure that you add two academic, professional or school based references to your UCAS application as we will not be able to accept a reference from a family member or friend. The referee’s e-mail should be an institution e-mail address and not a personal e-mail.

What happens following your application going in

Peninsula SCITT will make a decision to shortlist applicants for interview based on their application meeting the entry requirements and criteria.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend a school based day’s interview. The interview day will include applicants teaching an episode as well as a formal interview and some other activities. As well as being our selection process the day is an opportunity for applicants to meet some of the Peninsula SCITT staff and learn more about the programme.

Application Timescales

40 days – From the date that your application arrives with the Teacher Training provider (once references have been added) they have 40 days in which to consider your application, interview and record their decision on UCAS. If any ITT provider has not recorded a decision by the 40 day cut off date the application is Rejected By Default (RBD). RBD means that the ITT provider has not acted in time to consider or make an offer to the applicant.

10 days – From either the date that the last of the providers you have applied to records their decision on UCAS or your RBD date, whichever is the sooner, you have 10 days to choose which offer to accept and record your choice on UCAS.
