  • An undergraduate degree at class 2:2 or above, or equivalent.
Primary:
  • GCSE Maths, English and Science at Grade C or above

If possible, we recommend that you gain experience in a school setting prior to interview in order to strengthen your application and to help you understand what a career in teaching entails. Please contact us if we can support you with this.

St Joseph’s College participates in the School Experience Programme and you can book experience through the SEP website.  Please contact Angela Davies if there are no suitable dates on this website and we will do our best to match your availability.

If you do not have the required qualifications as detailed above, we will consider candidates who need to take a GCSE equivalency test in English, maths or science. Please contact Angela Davies to enquire about possible equivalency tests. 

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or would like further information about our SCITT and how to apply. We very much look forward to hearing from you.
