Can you help me? Watch
Hello, I am a Year 11 student currently studying in Essex. My dream is to become a primary school teacher, however I am not sure what to do when I leave Year 11. I want to become a primary school teacher, but what is better college or six form. Could anybody advise me on the best A-Levels to also take. I really need help.
College or sixth form? Whichever you get the best grades at
BTECs are mostly continuous assessment and A levels mostly exams. A levels are accepted everywhere. Sixth forms tend to offer A levels and Colleges BTEC.
Have a look at the ones around you and find one you like, plus offers the course you want plus gets good grades.

Best A levels then see which ones you like and can get good grades in.
There arent specific ones but id think traditional subjects like maths or English could be useful.
Which degree? You can do a normal degree and then a postgraduate PGCE to get teacher status or you can just do a straight teaching/ education degree from the start.
Childhood studies, educational studies, teaching primary.
