Advice to applicants

  • We welcome applications from those exploring a career change, as we believe your experiences since graduating could be valuable to becoming a teacher.
  • Don’t be held back from applying for a scholarship because of your subject knowledge. Completing a subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) course is a way for you to refresh your subject knowledge before starting teacher training. You can apply for a scholarship at any time during your SKE course, though we will be assessing your chemistry knowledge during the assessment process so you may prefer to wait until you have completed your course.
  • We strongly recommend that you practice for the chemistry test and prepare you answers before you start the application process. Subject knowledge self-assessments can also help you review your subject knowledge.
  • Use the UCAS website search tool to identify all teacher training providers in England.
  • Register with the Department for Education (DfE) to find out more about the different teacher training options.
  • The Skills Transformer website was created for science, technology, engineering and maths students to help you recognise, write and talk about your skills; transforming them into useful, persuasive evidence.
