    firstly to study primary education you need experience with primary school kids in England/Wales/NI age 5-11. Anything else is great but you need at least 2 weeks with the aforementioned group. Secondly you need some kind of level 3 qualification- an access to higher education course might be a good idea as its only a year.

    You'll need a level 3 qualification. If you've been out of education for a few years then have a look at an Access to HE course. It's a one year full time college course that's designed for mature students who have been out of education for a while but who want to go to uni.

    You'll need to consider carefully if your health has now improved sufficiently for you to be able to cope with the rigors of university life and a primary teaching career - unfortunately if you are still unable to attend college even with support then I'm not sure how you could manage a university degree.
