Initial Teacher Training – How do I apply?



Applications for teacher training are submitted through the UCAS website at:

Sheffield Hallam University

Our programme is further enhanced by attendance one day per week at SHU for subject-specific development and accredition work. SHU will also provide intensive preparation for your school placement at the start of the Autumn term.

Professional Skills Test

If you are successful in application we expect you to have passed the tests within 6 weeks of you receiving a conditional offer from us. Therefore we STRONGLY advise you to familiarise yourself with the Skills Tests now – you can use the practice material available on the DfE website to help you decide whether you are ready to book a live test or whether you should undertake further preparation prior to taking the test.
