has a huge amount of information about how and where to train. They are responsible for setting the standards for qualified teachers and for accrediting teacher training providers
The undergraduate route
The undergraduate route combines your chosen BEd, BA or BSc degree with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). To gain entry to an undergraduate course you will be required to have at least two A-levels or equivalent, with at least one being in a National Curriculum subject.
Most courses equip you for primary teaching, but there are also some undergraduate secondary programmes. Full-time courses last three or four years. For more information contact your local university or visit www.ucas.com.
The Teachers’ Pensions Scheme (TPS) is a contributory scheme administered by Teachers' Pensions (TP) on behalf of the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF). It is a defined benefit ‘final salary' scheme and is one of the most important and valuable benefits available to teachers. The TPS not only provides you with a lump sum and regular income after you retire but also provides your family or other dependants with financial protection after you die.
The TPS is a statutory scheme subject to the Teachers' Pensions Regulations 1997 (as amended).
Further information can be found on the Teachers' Pensions website.
