Application Resources for Teachers

Students apply to the Aspiring Professionals Programme (or APP) via our online form. Depending on their eligibility and location they select a strand (APP City or APP Reach, and/or one APP Residential) on the form when they indicate their career sector preferences.

There are three main components to the application process:

  1. Students apply via our online application form. The deadline for 2021 has now passed and applications for 2022 will open in Autumn.
    • The application does not need to be completed in a single sitting. After completing the first page a ‘Save and continue later’ option will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. Students can enter their email to be sent a unique link to log back in and continue their application at a later date. We recommend drafting and saving written answers offline in case of any issues.
  2. Students nominate a teacher referee (Name, Title and Email) who they are happy to give details about their academic and personal situation in support of their application. Teacher Referees will receive an email link to complete this after the student submits their application.
  3. After submitting their online form students download and complete a paper eligibility form and have this stamped or signed by a member of staff at their school or college.

Guides and Resources will be available when applications open for 2022.
