    Depends. And note the fastest way is often not the best. Where are you at the minute in terms of experience and qualifications?

    You get a degree. You get a PGCE.

    Alternatively, some private schools do not require a PGCE. However, they generally like to see academic experience or experience in the field instead (i,e, you have a masters' in the subject, or if you're applying to be a technology teacher, that you've worked in technology)

    There really isn't really a quick way. Assuming you go to university at 18, you can expect to start the PGCE the year after you graduate.

    Or you can do an undergraduate degree which includes QTS. Still 3-4 years though so not a lot quicker, if at all.

    About to make a new thread so if you could look at that I would be grateful.

    Before you decide to throw yourself at teaching, get some experience first. The reality is completely removed from the dream.
