If you are a graduate looking to train as a teacher, we currently offer the one-year PGCE and School Direct routes to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Early Years Practice with Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). Alternatively our three-year BA (Hons) QTS course might be for you if you are looking for an undergraduate course that qualifies you as either an Early Years or Primary school teacher.  Whichever route you choose, your learning experience at Chester will be a highly supportive one that gives you the best possible chance of becoming an outstanding teacher.
