Primary Course Vacancies for September 2021

Applications for all the courses listed below are expected to open on UCAS on 8 October 2020.

All WLTSA primary teacher training courses are run in partnership with (and accredited by) either St Mary's University, Twickenham or University of Roehampton. Both universities are Ofsted 'Outstanding' providers of teacher education.

Each course has an identifying code (such as 37F8) which you need to be aware of when you apply on UCAS. Having selected the course code, you can also then select your preferred host school for that course.

The vacancy list below has been updated to show which schools are looking for trainees to start in September 2021. For each course there is a short accompanying course document (approx. 6 pages), which you can access by pressing the button linked to each course.  These course documents provide information about the course, entry requirements and details about each school, WLTSA and the relevant university.

We have not yet updated the course documents which are still dated for the 2020 cohort. They show the schools from last year on their front covers and still refer to last year's interview arrangements.  We will be updating them over the summer, for example all interviews will now be online.  We have retained access to the 2020 course documents on our website because you may find them useful to give you an idea of what to expect.

It will be important that you read the 2021 version of the course document before applying, to check the specific entry requirements, read about the schools and see a map of where each is located.  The unsalaried course documents include a typical timetable.
