Teaching days compared with minimum 100 for PGCE)
• You get no training before entering a school
environment
• You do the vast majority of your teaching in 1 school,
not in lots of smaller placements
• You get paid (See the unqualified teacher pay scale)

Applying for a GTP
• http://www.tda.gov.uk/get-intoteaching/teacher-training-options/gtp/howto-apply.aspx
• This website will help you to find training
providers. Although it tells you some providers
help you to find a school, this is not the norm.
• Therefore, you need to find a school that is
willing to take you on to do a GTP before
applying.
When you’ve found your school and
training provider:
• Personal statement
• Interview

What can you offer apart from your own specialist subject?
What skills and knowledge can you bring from your previous
work experience?

for teaching?
How to make a successful application for a
teacher training course
Avoid at all costs:

Enthusiasm.
Your motivation to teach.
Your ability to relate to and communicate with young people.
Your academic abilities.
Your desire for self-development.

used these skills.

How to make a successful application for a
teacher training course
• Your interview
– Interviews usually take place over a full day and the
training provider will let you know the programme for the
day.
– You will be asked about your experience of working with
young people, your commitment to teaching, and your
relevant knowledge and skills.
– It will include an individual interview and group tasks such
as group discussions, presentations, and teaching minilessons.
– For secondary courses you may be asked to bring a
portfolio showing your achievements in your subject.
– The aim of the day is for you and the interviewers to find
out if teaching is right for you.
Application deadlines
• Final Year students: To start in September
2011, some have already passed.
• Through the TDA website you can check what
providers still have places for each subject.
Extra tips and summary
The GTP is an excellent route into teaching for those
who want a self-guided learning experience, working
alongside experienced teachers, as well as being
paid.
Places on courses are highly competitive, so make sure
you get some experience to help you stand out from
the crowd. Remember that this can include any work
with children, not just in schools.
