There’s still time to share your experience

Thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences with us – if you haven’t already done so, there’s still time. Please complete our short survey by 18:00 today, Thursday 8 November, to share your feedback on:

  • your overall experience of the UCAS Teacher Training scheme
  • changes we could make to improve your experience of the scheme
  • the summer reject by default (RBD) pilot
  • changes to the application fee

The survey should take no longer than ten minutes to complete. All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence, in accordance with the Market Research Society’s Code of Conduct.

Should one of your colleagues be receiving our emails instead?

Is there someone else at your provider who should be receiving our bulletins and emails? If so, it’s time to update your UCAS Teacher Training correspondent details in web-link. To find out how to do this, take a look at pages 11 – 12 on the UCAS Teacher Training Set-up Guide. Remember, it’s the responsibility of the UCAS Teacher Training correspondent to share important information from our communications with colleagues at your provider. Additional staff members can sign up to receive some of these updates from us too – they just need to complete this form.
