Please check the entry requirements for your chosen course before applying for a School Direct place with us.
Please note that for Modern Languages French and German you will be required to teach both languages during your placements. We do not offer Spanish as a second subject.
All applications are screened initially by the University of Exeter Admissions department to check suitability for the programme. Suitable applicants will then be contacted by the West Country Training School Alliance and invited to attend an interview. While we aim to interview candidates in person this year, there may be a return to online interviews should Covid restrictions change.
Applicants will be asked to prepare a 20-minute section of a lesson to be delivered to a group of students on interview day. The title and learning outcomes for the lesson episode will be shared with applicants one week prior to the interview. A formal interview will be conducted by the Director of WCTSA and will include questions on the pre-interview tasks in addition to questions on safeguarding, knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning, education and experience.
