What qualifications do I need?

Once you have a degree or equivalent qualification you’re ready for postgraduate primary or secondary initial teacher training.

You also need the following GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, or equivalent qualifications:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science if you want to teach primary

You may be able to show you meet the standard in another way if you do not have these GCSEs.
