Would you take your seats please? Right, today we're going to be thinking about out English work and all the things that we've got to finish off. If you're considering becoming an English teacher, there are a couple of options open to you.

A primary teacher does have an option when you're training or qualifying to potentially do an English degree or perhaps a teaching, primary teaching, degree with English and this has offered a great root if you're thinking of specializing in perhaps literacy coordinated positions or going on in that direction. If you're thinking of becoming a secondary English teacher, you'll be more specifically teaching your subject once you qualify. So, the key things you're going to need are a GCSE in English, Math, and Science, and you need them at grade 0 above. You need a degree, and this could be in English but it could be in many other subjects as well. Quite often, people tend to go on to do English teaching perhaps following a Drama degree or Creative Writing degree, etcetera, and you will need QTS or Qualified Teacher Status, and this is available either within the degree itself, or as a post graduate certificate in education, or even potentially on the job. Once you've obtained those, then you'll be able to just find a job teaching English in either a primary or secondary school. And that's how you become an English teacher. .
