Applicant Information Events

We’re always keen to meet potential applicants and so we run information events throughout the year. These are great opportunities to find out more about who we are, what we do and what it’s like training with us. You will get to meet members of the central team as well as current and recent Associate Teachers (our name for people training with us) and have all your specific questions answered.  The events will be held at our three Training Hubs and you can reserve your free place now by clicking the links below, to book through Eventbrite.  Booking a place is not essential but it helps us to plan and make sure we have enough resources and refreshments!

We will be running a number of information events this year:

Application Support Workshops

Throughout the year our colleagues at partner schools will also run workshops for candidates applying to our ITT programmes, these are a great opportunity for you to find information, ask questions and prepare for your application or interview with Oxfordshire Teacher Training.

The scheduled dates are:

  • 19th March 2020, Gillotts
  • 29th April 2020, Blessed George Napier

Please visit the Gillotts Teaching School website for information on how to book onto an Application Workshop.

Equivalency Testing Dates

Candidates who do not yet hold a GCSE grade C or above in the required subjects must pass an Equivalency Test before the programme/ summer training begins. We are holding examination sessions at The Cherwell School for candidates who will be undertaking a programme with Oxfordshire Teacher Training. There is no requirement to complete these tests in advance of your application, we would recommend that you book onto a date once you have successfully received an offer from us. The cost for each Equivalency Test is £154, payable to Educate at the point of booking. For more information and to reserve your place at an invigilated exam with us, please contact
