    Hi,

    Hoping some of you out there can give me some advice.
    I joined the Royal Air Force at 17 with average GCSE's and left last year. I have always fancied going into PE teaching and wondered where to go next?

    Can i go into teaching or are these grades too low to be accepted to a uni?

    Also, what different avenues are there into teaching? I have looked on a few websites but it's hard to filter out the rubbish.

    Thanks for reading this and i hope some of you can help???

    I think your best option is to start at a FE College. There you can take up A levels such as PE, Biology etc that will help towards making an application for PE at University.

    Go directly to the universities and colleges that provide teacher training for PE.

    I presume there are minimum qualifications for teaching. However, for non teaching degrees but many universities are prepared to take military service into consideration so long as you can show certain skills and characteristics (which if you got to J/SNCO you certainly would be able to). I'm not sure how that leeway plays out in the specific case of teaching though, and I guess only the specific institutions could make that call.
