Submitted your application to become a Bath Spa Teacher and wondering what your next steps should be?

After you’ve applied, you’ll receive a final decision within 40 working days.

  • Interviews
    If your application is selected you’ll be interviewed before you can be offered a place. It is your opportunity to share with us your personal qualities and experiences that will allow us to assess your suitability to teach and identify your personal training needs.

    Primary and Early Years interviews are conducted in groups. Secondary interviews are made up of subject group and one-to-one interview sessions.

    You’ll be expected to carry out tasks in preparation for and during your interview. Non-Cognitive Assessment (NCA) activities may be included in the recruitment and selection process. You’ll be notified of any requirements prior to interview.  

  • Professional Skills Tests
    If you’re successful in the initial phases of your application, we’ll ask that you have registered to take your QTS Professional Skills Tests in literacy and numeracy. This can be before or after your interview date, however, any offer will be dependent on you passing the test.

  • Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses
    Entry to some PGCE programmes is conditional upon completion of a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course. These courses run in the year prior to the PGCE programme.
