Open University: is it suitable for teaching?

I am looking to pursue a career in primary school teaching. I got an A C E overall in my a levels, no where near the A A B required to teach in NI. I’ve tried looking up alternate routes, including ringing universities and trying to find an access course, but you need to be 21. I’ve just found an OU honours degree in education studies (primary), however you do not get QTS. Will I still be able to be accepted into a PGCE at universities here in NI, or is this degree looked down upon because it’s online? Thank you for any help.
