Step 1 Eligibility Check

Age

  • 26 - 53 (Must enter SERE before 53rd birthday)

Nationality

You must be a citizen of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, a holder of dual UK/other nationality or have been a Commonwealth citizen since birth.

Whether or not you were born in the United Kingdom, you should have resided there for the 5 years immediately preceding your application. However, candidates with a minimum of 3 years will be considered.

Following the MOD announcement that the UK Armed Forces will now be able to recruit commonwealth citizens without the 5 year residency requirement, please note that the RAF continues to apply standard residency requirements for security clearance,  ie, DV employment requires 7-years UK residency immediately prior to enlistment; SC requires 3-years. 

Qualifications

The academic qualifications required are those set by the Sending Churches for ministerial training. You must be ordained and have 3 years’ pastoral experience.
