    Primary or secondary?

    If you want to teach primary then yes, you can, as most courses accept any degree. You'll have a choice of either ages 3-7 or 5-11 (most opt for 5-11). If you want to teach secondary, you might qualify for a Design and Technology PGCE but you'd have to check with individual institutions.

    Oh dear! Yes a pgce is for teaching but what do you want to teach. Good advice above. I think the first thing you need to do is some research. Good luck!

    There's quite a lot of options so it's really up to you - consider what area of the country you want to train, and eventually work, at. Probably the most important aspect of the application is school experience - the usual requirement is 10 days so make sure you have at least that, ideally working across two key stages.

    Thanks again I don't mind starting with primary as they start you have to start from the bottom but I was told I don't qualify because I did fashion of which I passed my business studies with distinction so I would like to focus on that I like my accounting & maths

    I think you need to do some homework as you appear to be stabbing in the dark. Have you found the train to teach website?

    https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/

    There is also a telephone number you can call. Teaching is a tough profession, the application process is purposefully difficult and is designed to put off casual applicants. Just a thought.
