Interview Dates

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 and we include details below relating to our courses accredited by St Mary's, Roehampton and UCL.



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.

First Stage Interview Dates are set in advance across the year.  

These are normally 8.30am to 12.30pm with the exception of PE which starts at 8.00am

These courses have a two stage interview.  Once you have been shortlisted the first interview takes place at the host school without the university present. These interviews are arranged on an ad hoc basis, as needed depending when suitable applications come in.

Any successful candidate from the school interview is then invited to attend an interview at the university. The university interviews take place within 15 days of the referral from the school interview.
