Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still apply for Teacher Training in September 2022 with the NTTC?

Our applications for 2022 are closed, but you can apply for September 2023 through Apply for teacher training.

The earlier you apply; the more choice you will have for teacher training placements starting in September 2023. Applications will close in June.

If your application is successful, we will arrange a face to face or online interview to find out if you are right for our network of schools and you can ask us any questions about Norfolk Teacher Training Centre.

We are adapting our assessments and have removed the need for applicants to teach a mock lesson. Documentation such as degree and GCSE certificates may be scanned and sent electronically following your interview. You will be able to contact us by phone or email throughout the application process.

What if I cannot gain experience of working with children and young people prior to interview?

Prior experience in a school is not required before you are interviewed, but if you have been able to gain experience in schools, we would find reports from those schools helpful.

You can also include working with children and young people e.g. Scouts, Brownies, youth groups as evidence. Just remember to make reference to this in your personal statement.

We will contact applicants directly for specific guidance.

Can I start my Initial Teacher Training course before I have been awarded my degree?

Final year degree students can apply to start in September without being awarded your degree.

Will I still be able to apply for bursaries, loans, and scholarships as I apply?

Yes, you can still apply for financial support. Information on financial support can be found here and also in the Funding My Training section on the Department for Education website.

What if I have been unable to complete my Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course?

SKE training courses can be completed before or alongside your training. If you have been unable to complete a SKE course, the SKE provider will make an assessment and communicate this to your teacher training provide. If necessary, you can defer your SKE course and complete this alongside your teacher training course at a later date.
