We are very excited to be developing our own Initial Teacher Training programme with the support of SCITT and other recognised agencies.

To teach in a state school in England, you need to follow an initial teacher training (ITT) programme leading to qualified teacher status (QTS).

To qualify for postgraduate teacher training, you’ll need:

  • a degree;
  • grade 4 (C) or above in gcse English and maths;
  • grade 4 (C) or above in GCSE science if you want to teach early years or primary (3- to 11-years old);

If you do not have these GCSEs, you must prove you have the equivalent level of knowledge. Individual training providers will set specific requirements for their courses - they may ask for a particular class of degree or GCSE grades.

Before you start a teacher training course, you’ll also need:

Some courses offer a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE). This is an enhanced qualification that is internationally recognised, but not mandatory for teaching in England.
