Mrs Anthony’s story What is it like to be a teacher? What is it like to be a Headteacher?
How do I become a teacher? To become a teacher, you need – to hold a degree – to complete a course of initial teacher training (ITT) If you want, you can combine the 2!
How do I do it? You can: – complete your ITT alongside a degree – complete your ITT straight after a degree (part-time or full-time) – complete your ITT whilst working
Qualifying alongside a degree : Undergraduate ITT course Two types of undergraduate ITT: Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) with QTS specialise in a certain subject (maths, physics, languages…), while gaining your honours degree and qualified teacher status (QTS) Bachelor of Education (BEd) honours degree course in education for both primary and secondary teaching
Qualifying after a degree: Postgraduate ITT course One year course that includes – 18 weeks in a school for primary trainees – 24 weeks in a school for secondary trainees At the end of the course, you will be awarded qualified teacher status (QTS) You will become a newly qualified teacher (NQT) ready to undertake your induction year!
Qualifying whislt working: Graduate teacher programme (GTP) Schools sometimes employ non qualified graduates to follow a special programme (GTP) leading to qualified teacher status (QTS) You are paid while you train Competition for these places is stiff!
