Entry Requirements

Normally an honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in the subject specialism or a subject that is directly relevant.

GCSE (minimum grade C or grade 4): At least English language and mathematics. In-house equivalence tests are available for suitable candidates.

While experience in a school is not a condition of entry for initial teacher education courses we recommend that you take up opportunities to gain a realistic understanding of whether teaching is right for you. The Get Into Teaching School Experience Programme offers opportunities across the country to book a day’s worth of experience.
