Withdrawals and Deferrals

Withdrawals

If you decide to withdraw from the Teacher Induction Scheme or undertake the Flexible Route, prior to entering the classroom, can you please tell us by emailing stating your full name, date of birth and university.

In addition, if you have decided to withdraw from your course, please let us know as soon as possible, by emailing stating your full name, date of birth and university. Please note the student administrator will confirm your withdrawal with your university before taking any action, so it is very important to inform your university.

Deferrals

If you have found out that you are pregnant or wish to defer your teacher induction scheme, then you need to complete the following:

Pregnancy

You will need to obtain a MATB1 form from your doctor or a letter from your midwife stating that you are pregnant.

Deferral

If you're a student you can request to defer:

  1. pre-allocation i.e. before you've been allocated to a local authority (between May and June)
  2. post-allocation i.e. after you've been allocated to a local authority (between June and August)

If you decide that you wish to defer prior to taking up your post, you will need to complete a deferral form and send this through to the Student Support Team for consideration.

Please see download and complete the deferral form.
