Pre-registration checklists

Before you can be registered on an ITE course, you will need to undertake a number of suitability checks. The purpose of these rigorous checks is to ensure that together, we keep children safe in education. As a student teacher, safeguarding children is the highest priority.

We know this can be overwhelming and we want to do everything we can to make the process as clear as possible. Based on feedback from our current student teachers, we designed the attached pre-registration checklists. This is made available to you so that you can manage and track your journey to being registered on your programme.

We hope you find this useful.
