Once you have applied

We carefully consider all the applications we receive, in conjunction with the Admissions team at Bath Spa University. If you are invited to interview we will notify you by email and on Apply. You will normally need to allow up to three hours, usually at St John’s Marlborough, for your interview. The interview process will include a short, observed teaching task with a group of students, usually from Year 7 or 8, a written task, and a formal panel interview. We will provide a brief for the teaching task in advance, as well as any other relevant information that will enable you to demonstrate your skills and qualities.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about our PGCE course, please email us with your questions, or request a meeting at: admintsa@stjohns.excalibur.org.uk
