    I am doing English literature and language, photography and BTEC applied science at level 3. Can I do a teaching degree with these a-levels? If so what university’s accept them and what courses could I do/ what courses would I need to do for teaching?

    If you get the grades then yes! If you want to teach primary you can do a primary education degree; https://digital.ucas.com/search/resu...earchbarbutton

    If you want to teach secondary you can either do a degree in a teaching subject eg English or Science then do a QTS or PGCE course for a year after you graduate, there are also some programmes like teach first.
    some universities offer secondary teaching degrees with a certain subject;

    Most of these courses require you to have done at least two weeks work experience in a school, preferably in the subject you want to teach, so I would recommend doing that for a successful application!
