Apply for teacher training
Apply for teacher training is a new GOV.UK service being trialled with a small number of training providers in England.
What you’ll need
To be eligible for teacher training, you need these qualifications (or their non-UK equivalents):
- a degree
- grade 4 (C) or above in English and maths GCSEs
- grade 4 (C) or above in GCSE science if you want to teach primary
Before you start a teacher training course, your training provider will usually send you a health questionnaire to complete. This confirms you have the fitness and physical capacity to start training.
If you have a disability
It is against the law for training providers to discriminate against teacher training candidates with disabilities or special educational needs. Learn more about training to teach if you have a disability.
If you do not have a degree
You can teach in further education (age 14 to adult), or study for a degree leading to qualified teacher status. Learn more about eligibility for teacher training.Start now
