Teaching is a graduate-only profession in the UK. If you are hoping to become a teacher, you will need to get a degree.
In addition, you will need Maths and English GCSE A* – C, or equivalent qualifications. If you want to teach primary or Key Stage 2/3 (ages 7-14) you will also need science GCSE, A*-C or equivalent. Some colleges of further education have Access to Teaching Training Courses, which will include equivalency tests. In East London colleges include College of North East London and Barking and Dagenham College.
