We recommend applying as early as possible to avoid disappointment and to ensure that you have time to make the right decisions about where to train.

All applications will require you to write a personal statement and provide two references.

Application process

Other requirements: All trainees will be asked to complete a range of safer recruitment checks prior to beginning the programme. We are only able to make you a conditional offer once all of these checks are completed.

Personal qualities: We are looking for trainees who committed to changing the life chances of children through teaching and who want to make a real difference to children’s lives.

Supporting documents

 After you have submitted your application, you may be contacted to provide copies of your supporting documents. These could be your degree certificate and evidence of your GCSE qualifications or equivalent.

Accepting your application

Once you apply through Get into Teaching, we look through your application and carry out a shortlisting process. We contact you once we have agreed that you meet the entry requirements for this course.

Interview process

All successful applicants are invited to attend an interview prior to an offer being made.

Interviews take place throughout the year and are held at different Partnership Schools, attended by senior leaders from those schools.

The interview is a four-part process that takes roughly half a day. There are a range of activities that interviewees need to undertake including a presentation, formal interview, working with children and a written activity.

After a successful interview, Hamwic SCITT may make you an offer to study with us.
