The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2021. They should be used as a general guide.
Degree and experience
Normally an honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in the subject specialism or a subject that is directly relevant.
If your degree isn’t in the subject area you wish to teach or you have relevant professional experience but need to learn how to apply that to teaching you may be suitable for a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course. If you pass the SKE qualifies you to start a PGCE.
GCSE (minimum grade C or grade 4)
At least English language and maths. 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.
