Working in teaching with A levels (or similar)
Most teaching jobs require a degree (or equivalent). However, in some cases a degree is not required.
To teach in further education (FE) and training, you will need to have considerable relevant experience, plus an appropriate industry qualification at Level 3 or 4. Teaching qualifications are not always required because you will be dealing mainly with adults. However, it might also be possible to teach a vocational subject (not available in school) to Year 10 and 11 learners.
Some independent schools do not always insist on their teachers having a degree or teaching qualification.
