What qualifications will I need to ?
- A degree – second class or first class
- GCSE (or equivalent) at grade 4 / C or above in English, Maths and a science
All of your qualifications need to be in place by the time the programme commences.
We'd recommend some time working / volunteering in a primary school classroom before you begin the programme so you understand the expectations of you as a teacher.
The skills tests have been discontinued but there will be a short 'quiz' to assess your maths and English skills - these are based on the expectations for Year 6 pupils in grammar, spelling, writing and maths so you're recommended to look at what these are in readiness for September so you can hit the ground running.
