    Do you have any A levels? Most people go through the university route. Read this for different options but I think most of them assume you have A levels already

    You could start an access course with the Dlc, do a levels privately and pay for the exams or start college next September.

    The Dlc will still take students now but be quick and a levels you just have to arrange to do the exams

    You could start an Access to HE course at a local college starting next September, which would allow you to start at university in September 2017. Somebody will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you can do a degree in primary education, or you could pick any subject in which you are interested and then do a PGCE afterwards to qualify as a teacher.

    That's great that you have got your GCSEs. In my opinion, your best route would be to do an Access to Primary Teaching. I studied with DLC to do an Access course, check this out:
