Screenshot of a page on the 'Apply' service. it reads: You can ask for support if you have a disability. You might benefit from extra support if you're disabled, have a mental health condition or educational needs. If you choose to tell us you need support, we'll let your training provider know. They can then make adjustments so you can attend an interview or do the training. Examples of support could be: organising equipment like a hearing loop or an adapted keyboard, putting you in touch with support staff if you have a mental health condition, making sure classrooms are wheelchair accessible

People are now using the new, live 'Apply for teacher training' service. Feedback so far has been positive especially in relation to how easy it is to use. Laura Tennant talks about how improving the usability of the service makes a big difference to who applies.
