All applications for WLTSA courses are considered by the school that you identified in your application, in collaboration with WLTSA centrally and the university. The administration of this process all takes place through the WLTSA Teaching School Office (0208 748 7600). The process is different depending on which university accredits the course.

For all unsalaried and salaried courses, there is a two stage interview. Once you have been shortlisted we ask the university to invite you to the first stage interview (at the university). We email you to confirm the date of the university interview and all the arrangements for the second stage (school) interview. Once a school vacancy fills, no more interviews are held for that school.
