Train to be a teacher if you don't have a degree

You can get qualified teacher status (QTS) as part of an undergraduate degree.

Courses typically cost £9,250 per year and can take up to 4 years but you can get funding for your training.

Qualifications vary depending on the course. For example, you could get QTS with a:

  • Bachelor of Arts (BA)
  • Bachelor of Education (BEd)
  • Bachelor of Science (BSc)
