You can do an undergraduate degree that leads to qualified teacher status (QTS), for example:
- Bachelor of Education (BEd)
- Bachelor of Arts (BA) with QTS
- Bachelor of Science (BSc) with QTS
You can also complete a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE), if you have a first degree without QTS. This is a common choice and can be done at university or on a school-based training programme.
There are more training options if you want to change career or specialise in teaching certain subjects.
You'll usually need:
- 5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), including English, maths and a science
- 2 to 3 A levels for a degree
- a degree in any subject for a postgraduate course
