A UK university degree

If you obtain a degree studied from a non-UK institution, you must have the equivalence of your degree (and other qualifications) verified through the National Recognition information Centre for the UK. (Tel: 01242260010). You will need to submit written evidence with your application.

English Language, Mathematics and Science GCSE grade4/C or above

Potential trainees who do not have English, Mathematics or Science GCSE grades 4/C above, or a recognized equivalent, can undertake an equivalency test. We accept equivalency tests from A*Teachers and Equivalency Testing.

Disclosure and Barring Service

It is a condition of all ITT courses that trainees must have a satisfactory enhanced DBS check before commencing training.

Arrangements for completing DBS check applications will be explained as part of the selection and induction process.

Recent School Experience

The Cambridge Early Years Teaching School EYFS programme will require potential trainees to have some recent school experience.

You should have completed at least 10 working days in a UK school within the 2-7 age range (preferably, 2-4) where you intend to train. If possible, you should also seek to spend some time in schools which cater for the ages preceding the relevant phase.
