    I wonder if anyone has any ideas/suggestions on this area -

    I'm in my final year of university and would like to go into teaching but didn't apply for a PGCE this year. Aside from Teach First, and education charities such as IntoUniversity does anybody know of any relevant jobs in the sector which I could apply for without yet being a qualified teacher eg mentoring/tutoring schemes, or GTP-like routes into the qualification which schools have?

    Many thanks!

    mentoring/tutoring schemes, or GTP

    Ultimately, if you want to teach in state-maintained schools you have to have QTS and the only way to gain QTS is through PGCE, GTP, or TeachFirst.

    These are the only routes I am aware of anyway.

    Independent schools however don't always require QTS. I know a guy from Germany who just wrote to school and as a native german speaker fluent in English he is now a German teacher! No qualifications!

    You've answered your own question - you can't teach in the maintained sector without QTS, which you can't get without having done a PGCE, a BEd or the GTP.
