What are we looking for? 

We are looking for candidates who have a passion for teaching, someone who enjoys a challenge who puts children and their needs first. 

Entry Requirements

Graduates should have a minimum 2:2 degree but preferably a 2:1 or higher. They also need GCSE grade C or above in English, Maths and Science. 


Teaching is a unique vocation, experience in school (paid or voluntary) before applying for the course, whilst not essential, ensures you have a realistic view of the career and what it entails. We can arrange experience if requested.

Selection Process

Blackpool Teaching School Alliance works in conjunction with the University of Cumbria to select suitable candidates to take through to our interview process. This will include initial safeguarding checks and whether candidates meet minimum entry requirements. 

Interview Process 

If selected for interview you will be invited to attend for an interview at one of the BTSA schools. The interview will consist of an academic discussion, a mini teach and a formal interview. Full details will be provided once a candidate has been selected.
