Can I become a primary school teacher with a Third?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys, I'll keep it sort.
    Graduated from Brunel Uni London is 2014, Sports Science, got a Third.

    Been working in schools since Feb 2015, so almost 2 years. Sport Coach, PPA cover and out of school clubs (sports)
    Decided I want to become a teacher, most places want a 2.2 minium.

    Anyone got any experience or had any luck getting on to anything whether it is SCITT, PGCE or School Direct etc.....

    Thankyou !! x

    I would apply for a school direct/SCITT direction if I was you, as they focus more on experience rather than academics :-)
    But I would call a few providers first and ask if some would screen you out automatically for your degree, as I know some that I am applying for have a screening process that doesn't accept anyone with the minimum qualifications
