You could complete a distance learning degree part-time whilst you work and then do a PGCE after if you really don't want to attend university full-time. You will require a degree though, yes. Alternatively, you could work in a support capacity in a school, or in a nursery.

Also, to add to this - the Open University offer a degree in primary education studies that can be taken full time at distance learning for three years. After this you can go into teacher training PGCE which is one year. The PGCE year, however, cannot be done through distance learning as it involves you working in school.
Hope that helps - I've linked the OU course below.

Alternatively, you could work as a Teaching Assistant or other role in a school whilst doing the degree through distance learning and then do a school direct route.
