Here you can find out about postgraduate and undergraduate routes into teaching.
If you already have a degree, consider a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE). A PGCE course mainly focuses on developing your teaching skills, rather than the subject you intend to teach.
If you do not currently have an undergraduate degree, you can complete a Bachelor of Education (BEd) or Bachelor of Arts (BA)/Bachelor of Science (BSc) with qualified teacher status (QTS) course. These courses enable you to study for a degree and complete your initial teacher training (ITT) at the same time. Both postgraduate and undergraduate courses are available at universities and colleges throughout the UK.
