Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BSc) with QTS

Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degrees with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) are popular with prospective primary school teachers, and focus on developing specialist subject knowledge required to teach. Not a common route for those wanting to study for secondary teacher training programmes, most providers only offer BA and BSc with QTS for primary teaching.
