We’ll consider candidates who need to take a GCSE equivalency test in English or maths.
If you do not have an English or Maths GCSE at grade C/Level 4 or above (or Science for primary teacher training), you can still apply for teacher training, but we will require you to pass an equivalency test before we confirm any offer that we make.
Further information on the providers that we recommend can be found our our website: (https://www.glfscitt.org/65/equivalency-tests)
Any overseas qualifications should be verified with ENIC for equivalency BEFORE an application is submitted - (www.enic.org.uk)
If your secondary qualification and your degree were studied abroad in a non-English speaking country and you do not have an English GCSE as you studied it as a second language, you will need to sit the IELTS Academic test - our minimum requirement is for an overall score of 7.0 with a minimum of 6.5 for Reading and 6.0 for Writing.
If you undertook secondary education in a non-English speaking country but took your degree in the UK and you finished it in the last three years, we do not require you to sit the IELTS. Please note that the IELTS test is only valid for 2 years.
