All applications for WLTTA primary courses are considered by the school that you identified in your application, in collaboration with WLTTA centrally and the university.  The administration of this process all takes place through the WLTTA Office (0208 748 7600 x290 and x466).   

Interviews are scheduled throughout the academic year as applications are shortlisted.  Courses are closed as they fill up. Our vacancy list is updated regularly to show this.

The interview process is different depending on which university accredits the course and we include full details in all our individual course documents on the vacancy page. We set out below an overview of the arrangements of all our courses.



Once we have shortlisted, there is an initial online interview with the university, and if you pass this, a further interview with the school a few days later. The university will email you about uploading scans of various documents to their portal.  This will include identification documents and relevant qualification certificates and transcripts if you have them available. 

If you are still taking your degree or a GCSE equivalency test, that’s fine but if you don’t have access to original certificates of exams already taken for your degree and Maths, English and Science GCSEs (that you are relying on), this is something that you should start to resolve now.  If you don’t have them in time for the interview, please be assured that we could still make an offer to you but it would be subject to later verification of your qualification certificates and sometimes certified copies can take a couple of months to arrive.



There is only one interview and it is with the school. The university may sometimes join us for these interviews.  



These courses have a two stage interview.  Once you have been shortlisted, the first interview takes place with the school without the university present. 

Any successful candidate from the school interview is then invited to attend an interview and diagnostic assessment at the university.
