Become an Apprentice Teacher

All applicants must meet the entry requirements for QTS to be able to undertake an apprenticeship.

The minimum requirements are below;

  • a degree
  • GCSE grade C / 4 in English and Maths – and a Science subject for applicants wishing to teach primary.

If you meet these entry requirements, please discuss with your school if they will support your application to become an apprentice and train for teaching. This will mean that the school 

  • is able to employ you as an unqualified teacher with class responsibility for the training year 
  • is confident that you have the skills and knowledge to undertake this during your training year 
  • has the capacity to support you with an in-school mentor and meet the employer expectations of apprenticeship

If your school is wanting to support you through an apprenticeship route, they will need to start the application process. They can do this on our employers page.
