    If you apply for a SCITT you'll start when your school starts and attend the schools training days etc.You'll teach 2 weeks into your course.
    If you apply for a university-led route, you'll start university end of September and start teaching/being in schools around Christmas.

    Even with the university route, the start date will depend partly on the term dates in your city and the structure of your course. My university required us all to do a preliminary placement during the first two weeks of term, so technically, we had started in August (our schools reopen earlier than most of the country) but our first day at university was 14th September. Our first placement began on 12th October, so not long after we started the course!
