GCSE requirements

The GCSE grade requirements if you want to train to teach are:

  • Minimum GCSE grade 4/C (or overseas equivalent) in Maths and English to teach at secondary level

Degree requirements

You normally need at least a 2:2 degree to gain QTS, but we may consider other applicants with significant school experience.

For secondary teaching your degree is normally expected to be in a related subject to the subject you are applying to teach, although Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses are available.

If you have overseas equivalent qualifications, please contact us.
