Part Time UCAT® (UKCAT)/ BMAT® Teacher

Do you have a passion for helping others? Are you a confident communicator with experience of standardised tests? If so, then teaching for Kaplan could be for you.

Kaplan Test Prep is looking for students and graduates from the schools of medicine, dentistry, biomedical sciences and veterinary science that have experience of the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) or BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and are interested in helping students prepare to sit these tests.

The UCAT is the new test name for the UKCAT, both tests are identical, and experience of the UKCAT test is transferable to teaching UCAT. Learn More

We run BMAT and UCAT courses across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Full schedules and locations are available on our website.

London courses normally meet at the Kaplan London Centre adjacent to Leicester Square and at other Kaplan schools near London Bridge. Some courses are also taught Live Online in a virtual classroom, a unique and rewarding teaching experience.

Qualified candidates will be invited to attend a five minute teacher audition to showcase their communication and presenting skills, and if successful will be invited to interview. If successful at interview, candidates will then be invited to participate in a fully paid teacher training programme.

Candidates would ideally be available to teach on a range of weekends and occasionally during the week from June to November and to begin teacher training in March or May/June.
