If shortlisted for informal interview, you must have the following documents available:

  • Original GCSE A*-C or grade 4+ Mathematics, English(Language only, not Literature) and Science (or NARIC recognition of equivalencies at A*-C grade)
  • Original A-Level certificates (or NARIC recognition of equivalencies)
  • Original UK Degree no lower than 2:2 (or NARIC recognition of equivalencies at 1st, 2:1 or 2:2) - we do not currently over sponsorship visas for initial teacher training
  • Current Photo ID (UK Passport or overseas passport with British Citizenship/Visa documentation and original birth certificate – note a student visa is not acceptable)
  • Instead of the basic skills assessment, the DfE has asked Lead Schools to assess suitability for teaching including your subject knowledge for teaching and competency in the fundamental skills of English and Maths. We insist upon competence to GCSE grade 4 or equivalent

We also accept equivalency tests by Equivalency Testing, A Star Teachers or other appropriately accredited providers if the testing arrangements have been approved by the ITT team at Middlesex. We cannot accept functional skills or key skills.




We are able to offer two routes through different Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers:


MIDDLESEX: SALARIED Postgraduate Route to achieve QTS  with a PG Cert  (course code 2PZJ )

The SALARIED route means your fees are paid and you earn an income whilst training.  

MIDDLESEX: UNSALARIED Postgraduate Route to achieve QTS   (course code 2W8Z)

The UNSALARIED (tuition fees are paid by you but possibly with a BURSARY to help you) route is like doing the PGCE but spending 4 days a week in school rather than university! 

IF YOU HAVE ANY GENERAL QUERIES, EMAIL  SD@priestmead.harrow.sch.uk
