The basic GCSE grade requirements if you want to train to teach are:
- GCSE grade C (or overseas equivalent) in Maths and English to teach at secondary level
- GCSE grade C (or overseas equivalent) in Maths, English and Science to teach at primary level
You need at least a 2:2 degree to gain QTS. On postgraduate courses, the class of your degree may help to determine the level of funding you’re eligible for during your training.
For secondary teaching your degree will normally be in a related subject to the subject you are applying to teach.
If you have overseas equivalent qualifications, please contact us.
