Where to Apply

All applications must be made through the UCAS Teacher Training System

If you’re looking for programmes in England, you’ll need to use the Department for Education’s ‘Find postgraduate teacher training’ service. If you’re looking for programmes in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, you’ll need to use UCAS’ search tool.

There is no closing date for applications, each programme/subject will only close once all of the places are filled therefore submitting an early application is highly recommended.

* Please note: Although there are two different routes available to apply to for RCTTP, all training is done collaboratively and there is no difference in the training or qualifications received through the SCITT and School Direct routes. Trainees on both routes are trained together following the same programme. If you wish to apply to train with Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership please only apply to SCITT or School Direct not both.

Apply for SCITT

Applicants wishing to apply for the SCITT route should search for Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership in the list of providers

Applications for 2020/21 will open in October/November


Apply for School Direct

Applicants wishing to apply for the Sacred Heart School Direct route should search for Sacred Heart School with Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership in the list of providers.

Sacred Heart represent a consortium of schools in Redcar and Cleveland that work in partnership with RCTTP. They act as the lead school for School Direct training places and applicants may be placed in Sacred Heart or one of the other schools in the partnership. All queries regarding recruitment and the training programme should be made directly to RCTTP not Sacred Heart.

Applications for 2020/21 will open in October/November

What people say

Headteachers speak extremely highly of the quality that new teachers from the partnership provide and see them as competent and confident professionals who are ready for employment.

Ofsted Report 2016

I was asked during my interview why I chose this training programme instead of any other. I thought it would give me the best training of any that I’d found and I stand by that even more now. The support and guidance I got was exemplary.


This course really is fantastic. I feel personally that I could not have been given a better start to my teaching career.


Trainees have stated to me that all sessions without exception have been valuable to them mainly because they felt the nature and the content of the sessions had been well thought out and prepared in detail making them highly relevant to their classroom experiences

Partnership Tutor

The quality of training at Redcar and Cleveland Teacher Training Partnership is outstanding, and, as a result, trainees achieve high outcomes.

Ofsted Report 2016

One of the many strengths the RCTTP course offers is the high standard of support to trainees and I am especially thankful for that and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course
