All teachers are required to have a GCSE Grade C (or Level 4 equivalent) in English and Maths. If you are looking to train as a primary teacher, you will also require a GCSE Grade C (or Level 4 equivalent) in Science.
To join our Teacher Training Programme, you will also require an undergraduate degree. In order to remove the barriers to teaching and create a landscape of engaging and passionate teachers, we make entry to our course as accessible as possible. If you hold an undergraduate degree with first-, second-, or third-class Honours, we’re happy to consider you for our graduate programme.
If you’re applying to train on our PGCE course from outside of the UK, we can help you to check that your qualifications are equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree with NARIC to ensure you are eligible for the programme.
On top of your education qualifications, we also ask that all applicants come to the course with a desire to teach long-term, and a passion for shaping young people’s lives.
