Working in teaching with GCSEs (or similar)
Although it is unlikely that you will find a job in teaching with just GCSEs or equivalent, you could work in an education support role.
For example, when you are 18 or over, you could work in education support services as a teaching assistant or in a workshop, library, laboratory or in administration.
Approximate pay levels

Each local authority sets its own pay scales, as there is no national pay scale for teaching assistants (TAs). Many TA jobs have pro rata pay, so you would earn part of the annual salary depending on the hours you work. To find out the salaries in your area, look at specialist job recruitment agencies, advertisements on local authority websites, phone schools or ask other TAs.
