    Hi, I would like to become a primary school teacher but have no idea how to get into teaching. There are so many different routes e.g. SCITTS etc but I just don't fully understand which one is more appropriate. Please hep!

    Lots of different routes into teaching, you could do a BEd in primary education and gain your QTS at the same time. You could do a degree in early years, primary education and then do you PGCE after. If you want to do primary you could consider getting a degree in English/Maths/Science and then do a PGCE.

    Are you still in school?

    I am currently in my third year of my Early Years Degree. I know there are several other ways to get into teaching that just PGCE but I need to know the actual differences and which is more appropriate.

    It was a joke lmao supply teachers get treated badly by the kids and secondary school is just not a good place to teach. The kids mess around loads etc. Also supply teachers can end up going to some pretty dodgy schools

    You'll still gain QTS with either a PGCE or a SCITT from what I know SCITTS are more school based.
