I left college during my A-levels but want to take a degree in teaching (probably primary). I really don't want to re-do my A-levels, rather an access type course. I went to the TDA website and I could not find info. on them, but they do seem to exist and from what I can make out they are 1 year leading straight onto a degree. Does anyone know if that's right? It seems abit quick and TBH a bit too good to be true! Or does anyone have any other advice for routes into teaching?
Thanks

yes I did it as well as my friends and they went into primary school teaching, huh one could hardly speak proper English due to being not of this country.

Access courses are specifically designed to get people who are 19 plus into uni and are recognised as being A Level equivalent by pretty well all universities. They are recognised as being the most appropriate for mature students and tend to prepare you really well using material that is really relevant to the course you intend to follow.

For teaching they will probably include some work experience so you can use that in your interview and also will ensure you have the required GCSE Maths English Science equivs.

I did an Access course before starting my degree (social work). I highly recommend them grin

I finished and passed an access course this summer and am now two weeks into my English degree. Brilliant courses IMO
