Entrants are required to satisfy interviewers that they possess the physical and mental agility necessary to meet the strenuous demands of teaching. This does not preclude entrants with disabilities who give every indication of becoming competent and valued members of the teaching profession.
All applicants who are offered a place must submit an Occupational Health form. The place offer is conditional until successful completion of this is received.
In addition, entrants are required to sign a declaration that they have not previously been excluded from teaching or working with children; all place offers are conditional until an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance is received
