Teaching - A Profession That Needs No Qualifications - Really?

First they said you did not need Qualified Teacher Status to be a teacher. This was because we might deprive students of brilliant scientists who want to teach but do not have QTS.

Now they are saying you don't need a degree to be a teacher. This is because we want to "upskill" people who want to be teachers.

In a sector that is about giving people qualifications, the only "profession" where you won't need them, will be teaching.

I guess this is one way of plugging the gap left by all those "highly valued" QTS graduate teaching staff who decide they have had enough of being lectured to by political donkeys.

What do you think about this policy of not needing a degree to train as a teacher?
