Entry requirements

Normally GCSE mathematics, science and English language at grade C or above, or equivalent. Where applicants have achieved a GCSE grade 4 or above in English literature only, we will look for further evidence of a breadth of achievement in English.

You must also:

  • hold an honours degree (normally 2.2 or above) or equivalent which includes substantial elements of chemistry
  • complete a declaration of criminal convictions and health check forms

You are encouraged to gain experience of schools through direct observation of teaching and learning and/or by working with young people in science-related or other educational activities

Candidates who are successful will demonstrate a sound understanding of teaching and how children learn, where possible within a school setting. We encourage all candidates to evidence their understanding by drawing on related examples or experiences, such as time spent in schools or other learning settings. Demonstrating an ability to make links between experience and knowledge, and their proposed career would be desirable.
