If you already have a degree, this is the route for you.
How does it work?
You can do a teacher training course to get QTS with a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE).
Getting a PGCE can help you:
- get a better understanding of teaching practice and theory
- earn up to 60 credits towards a master’s - you may want to do a master’s in education, for example, for your professional development
- teach in other countries

You can also do a teacher training course to just get a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) without QTS.
If you just get a PGCE without QTS, you may not be fully qualified to teach in your chosen school.
