Are you thinking about becoming a teacher? We offer a number of routes into teaching at Canterbury Christ Church University.
If you don't already have a degree, you can apply for one of our undergraduate teaching courses which lead to recommended Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in three years. Our full-time courses leading to QTS include Primary Education, Primary Education with Mathematics Specialism and Mathematics and Secondary Education. We also offer Primary Education (part-time), applying through us.
If you'd like to study on one of our full-time undergraduate teacher training courses, you can apply through UCAS in the same way you would apply for any other undergraduate course.
If you already have a first degree, we offer primary, secondary and further education PGCE courses allowing you to qualify as a teacher in one year. Find out more, including our part-time options available, on our postgraduate course listings.
Applications for postgraduate teacher training courses at Canterbury Christ Church University can be completed and submitted via UCAS Teacher Training. In your application you'll be asked to give details of your qualifications, write a personal statement and provide details for two referees.
There are two phases on the UCAS Teacher Training application: Apply 1 and Apply 2.
Apply 1: This is where you'll submit your first application. You can apply to up to three choices.
Apply 2: If you are unsuccessful in Apply 1, you can use Apply 2. You can add one choice at a time.
Once you’ve chosen the right course for you, visit UCAS Teacher Training.There you will find step-by-step information on completing your application, writing a personal statement and more.
If you've been employed as an unqualified teacher, with at least two years' experience and an undergraduate degree, you can apply for our Assessment Only for Qualified Teacher Status course. You can apply directly to us. Please visit the course page for more information on applying.
If you're already working in the further education and skills sector, the Diploma/ProfGCE in Education and Training is offered at partner colleges. This course offers a route to apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status, and you can apply directly to your preferred partner college. Once you've been offered a place by the college, you'll then need to apply to us separately.
