Do you know your Premier Plus, GTTR, SCITT and QTS? Those who do, teach. With so many changes to graduate routes into teaching, it can be difficult to know which route is best for you, what other options exist and what support you may get. The DfE Get into Teaching website has useful resources and regularly puts on free events where you can find out more about the different types of teachers, the qualification routes and how to apply.
