Teacher Training Programme

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School works through the West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA) to provide School Direct PGCE(M)QTS teacher training places at our school every year on a course accredited by St Mary’s University, Twickenham.

The teacher training course that runs at our school is identified by the UCAS Course Code 37FB.  Full information regarding Course 37FB can be found on the Primary Courses page of the West London Teaching School Alliance website http://www.wltsa.org.uk/initial-teacher-training/primary-courses/

In the ‘vacancies’ tab, click the course information button for course 37FB and you will access a short document describing the course, its entry requirements and how to apply.  All the key information that you need to later find the course on UCAS, is shown on the front page of the document.

We currently have vacancies for the course starting in September 2020 and encourage you to apply as soon as you can!  Remember that schools normally break up in mid-July and the courses will close to applications in early July.  Please don’t leave it that late to apply.  In term time we can review applications very quickly and endeavour to confirm whether or not you have been shortlisted for interview within a week.

Covid 19: As a result of Covid-19 and the current closure of schools, interview arrangements referred to in the course document have been changed.  There would now be one online interview attended by both the school and the university.  WLTSA continues to process applications very promptly.

You will find lots of useful information on the WLTSA website linked above but if you would like to speak to someone about our course, please send your phone number by email, together with a brief outline of your query to the email addresses shown below and they will call you back.

Alex and Pippa are both normally based in the WLTSA Teaching School Office but they are currently monitoring emails from home and are happy to speak with you.
