I'm looking to apply for teacher training next week for 2016 entry, but I struggle when it comes to references. I can use an employer (but they have nothing to do with teaching) and I left university about 6 years ago so would struggle to get one from a lecturer. My boyfriend's parent is a university lecturer, and while I know it says no family/friends etc, would this count in that criteria?
I would be grateful for any help/suggestions, as this has put me off applying previously as I think without relevant references my application would be rejected.

I'm pretty sure that most say you only need an academic reference if you left uni in the last 5 years.
How about the headteacher at a school you've done work experience at?
