There are some basic eligibility requirements you’ll need to meet to become a qualified teacher in England (or working towards them)
You need the following or equivalents:
a Bachelor's degree or equivalent with a 2:2 or above
grade 4 (C) or above in English and Maths GCSEs
grade 4 (C) or above in GCSE science if you want to teach primary
If you do not have GCSE grade 4 (C), you’ll need to show that you can meet an equivalent level.
If you have studied abroad, you can get a statement from UK ENIC (the UK agency that recognises international qualifications and skills) that shows how your qualifications compare to UK qualifications.
You can train on a tuition-fee-led programme, on-the-job training, whilst studying to gain QTS. This is where you pay your own fees.
You can also consider our Teaching Apprenticeship programme, which is a four-term on-the-job training, whilst studying to gain QTS where fees and salary are paid by the school.
