To complete your UCAS application you will need your personal statement and details of:

  • Your relevant qualifications (including a breakdown of your degree topics)
  • School and work experience
  • Two professionals or academics who can act as your referees, one of whom must be able to comment on your suitability to work with children
  • One professional reference: someone who can comment on your character and suitability as a teacher.  If you are applying for a salaried position, your professional reference will need to be from your current or most recent employer
  • One academic reference: for example, a current or recent university tutor. If you finished university more than five years ago, you may prefer to use a second professional referee.
