How to Apply

We are continuing to recruit for our Teacher Training Programmes

To apply for any of our Secondary Teacher Training Programmes, please visit the Teacher Training Portal and search for ‘Redhill Secondary Teacher Training. Here you will find full information on the courses we offer and how to apply via UCAS.


Who are we looking for?

We are seeking high quality graduates to begin training in September 2020.

In order to apply for a place, you must have:

  • A good UK honours degree or equivalent: preferably a minimum 2.2 in the subject you wish to teach; GCSE English and Mathematics at minimum grade 4+ or equivalent, gained prior to applying.
  • Disclosure and Barring Service checks.

If you studied outside of the UK, you should visit the National Academic Recognition Centre (NARIC) website to find out whether your qualifications are of an equivalent level to UK GCSEs, A levels and an undergraduate degree.

The SCITT Programme focuses on developing teaching skills. You should have a strong understanding of the subject you wish to teach before you start training. Ideally your degree should relate directly to your chosen teaching subject. If your degree subject does not link closely to your chosen teaching subject you may still be eligible to apply, but we may recommend that you undertake a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course, before you begin training. If you are in any doubt as to whether your qualifications are sufficient to apply, please contact Sarah Haslam at

In addition, all candidates applying for initial teaching training (ITT) are required to have passed the literacy and numeracy professional skills tests before starting teacher training.


You will need to pay tuition fees of £9,250 to cover the cost of your course. 

You could be eligible for a tax-free bursary or scholarship, currently up to £28,000, depending on the subject you want to teach and the degree class that you hold. For further information on bursaries please visit

SCITT Salaried: You will be paid a salary by the school in which you train. This salary will be in line with the unqualified teacher pay ranges if you are employed by a local authority maintained school, or at the advertised rate at an academy. You will not be eligible for a training bursary.

Student finance (SCITT Non-salaried Programme only): All candidates from the EU are eligible for a tuition fee loan. In addition, candidates from the UK can also apply for a means-tested maintenance grant and a maintenance loan. offers further information about student finance, including a finance calculator to help estimate the grants and loans that may be available to you.
