No, the Southfields SD scheme is for secondary training only. For those interested in primary training, please see Wandsworth Primary E.B.I.T.T, St. Mary’s Web site or contact the National College of Teaching and Leadership, who will be able to assist you on primary teaching schools in London.
Normally, good honours (2:1 or above) degree (B.A or BSc) in the subject you wish to teach and GCSEs, at grade C or above, in English and Mathematics (you need a grade C or above in Science if you wish to train to be a P.E. teacher). All trainees must have passed their numeracy and literacy skills tests before interview.
All trainees must have a police, health and a qualifications check. A Criminal Records Bureau check is carried out to ensure that workers have no criminal record which would debar them from working with children and vulnerable adults.
