UK NARIC is the national agency responsible for providing information and advice about how qualifications and skills from overseas compare to the UK’s national qualification frameworks.
In order to become a qualified teacher in the UK, you must meet certain academic criteria set by the UK Government. A Statement of Comparability from UK NARIC will provide you with the information you need to establish whether or not you meet the academic criteria.
In order to undertake teacher training in the UK you must:
- hold a qualification comparable to a UK Bachelor degree
- be able to demonstrate that you meet a standard equivalent to GCSE grade C in mathematics and English
- to demonstrate a standard equivalent to a grade C in a science GCSE if you intend to teach primary or key stage 2/3 (ages 7-14)
UK NARIC is able to confirm whether your qualifications meet the first two of these criteria.
