How to Become a Teacher without going to University
Degree versus certification, this topic has always been under controversy. The question is, can I become a teacher without going to Uni? You will definitely find your answer here.
The great news is, Yes! You can become a teacher without spending a handsome amount of money in Uni on a Degree. All you need is a Qualified Teachers Status (QTS). Click on How to get QTS which has been explained in detail.
The first method is the assessment-only route. This route requires you to look for a Teachers Qualification or a Level 5 Education course. This course was previously known as DTLLS and now it goes by the name Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training. However, you will have to meet the required standards of the provider you choose for this course.
At the ELN, you do NOT need any prior Teaching Qualification to enrol in this Diploma in Teaching course. All you need is to have reading and writing skills in order to complete the course, you must be 19+ years old, have a laptop/computer to access the teacher qualification material on our LMS. The last requirement is to have access to 100 hours of teaching of which 8 hours must be observed and assessed (we can arrange an assessor visit, assess via Zoom or video recording, or authorise a suitably qualified person in your company). You can do this course while you’re on the job.
Without a degree, you can become a teacher of your Native Language in a foreign country. However, employers would want you to either have a Degree, Teaching Qualification or years of Teaching Experience. You can acquire a Teaching Qualification that can help you land well-paid jobs. State schools can hire you if you do not have a qualified teacher's degree.
You can also enrol in the Level 3 Award in Education and Training, previously known as PTLLS. This can help you get the basic knowledge about Education and Training in your own specialist area. This course can also make you Become a Teacher without going to Uni. However, if you are planning to gain the QTS, you will have to enrol in the Level 5 DET qualification.
