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.
Access to HE Diploma
minimum one year full-time study at HE level OR 120 CATS points at level 1 in a relevant subject area.
GCSE (minimum grade C or grade 4)
at least three subjects, including English and maths. In-house equivalence tests are available for suitable candidates if these requirements have not already been achieved.
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.
