I want to be a primary school teacher and want to know different routes... ive researched a lot but nothing is really clear to me, for example is the pgce course just a one year course or do i do a degree before it. also if there are any ways i can become a teacher without going to uni. Thanks

You can do a 3 year Bsc/BA (hons) or BED with qualified teacher status (QTS)
You can do a one year vocational post graduate certificate in education (PGCE) after a suitable bachelor's degree
You can do School-centered initial teacher training (SCITT) where you do a course whilst working as an unqualified teacher. Also look up Teach First. You gain QTS but also may get a PGCE.
