How to apply


Teacher training places for 2020/21  with

Weatherhead Teaching School Alliance

will be available to view on the UCAS website on 1st October

You can view these on the UCAS site and begin to complete an application form from the 8th October.

This can then be submitted in the first round of applications (Apply 1) which will open on Tuesday 8th October 2019.

If you are successful in being offered a place, you may train in any of the schools listed. We place you by matching your needs to the needs of the school.

The fees are £9250, paid to LJMU. You may be entitled to a bursary – for information click here.

Gaining school experience is essential.  We can support applicants to gain additional school experience following the interview stage. Simply state any experience, plus your commitment to gain experience, to submit your application and we can take it forward from there.

You can also sign up for the School Experience Programme, for assistance with finding opportunities to spend time in schools and subject areas.

Application Process

It is a competitive process and even though the UCAS window is open from October to mid June, we strongly recommend applying as early as possible as the number of allocated places fill extremely quickly.
