Task/Interview day

Successful applicants will be contacted by phone to arrange a suitable interview time, applicants will then receive an email confirming the interview along with details of tasks you should prepare in advance.

Candidates are asked to send copies of their ID and qualifications prior to interview to be checked, ID is then confirmed at interview.

Interviews take place at a partnership school, candidates complete a series of tasks designed to assess communication skills, personal qualities and knowledge of educational practice including a presentation task and an interview with pupils. This will be followed by a formal interview including a pre-prepared teaching task.

Opportunities will be taken to identify any special arrangements required for candidates who have declared a disability as part of their application.

In exceptional circumstances, if the candidate is unable to attend the interview in person, an online interview will take place.  The online interview will be in the same format as the Personal interview and will include the teaching task.

What people say

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

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
