For primary, the course requirements are generally just a degree with a classification of 2.2 or above. Obviously, you'd need to sell yourself a bit and consider what aspects of your degree will help you in teaching. You also need a C / 4 in GCSE maths, english, and science.

If you end up going into secondary, you could train as an RE teacher with that degree. You might also be able to get onto other subjects with an SKE, it will depend on the training provider what they're willing to accept. I know mine really wasn't fussy at all about what your degree was in so long as you could prove interest and willingness to learn, but others will be more fussy. Do bear in mind that if you specialise in a more 'niche' subject in secondary, you will often end up also taking classes in subjects outside of your specialism to fill your timetable.

Im thinking of primary which shouldn't require any a levels or degree tbh.
I want to learn about my Religion and others in depth as part of my faith and since teaching primary doesn't require any degree ill go for it!!

I may move over to RE in the future at secondary. Havent thought about it. Thanks!
