The Teaching Agency gives information to people who wish to train to teach in England. This section of the Teach in Scotland website outlines the routes to become a primary school teacher and gives links to course providers who offer the courses. You may like to browse their websites or contact them to find their entry requirements (www.teachinginscotland.com/665.455.495.html).
In order to train to teach in England, you have to have a recognised degree. You can either consider a post graduate course, or opt for an employment based route to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). More details can be found here: http://www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/teacher-training-options.aspx
Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) is the graduate level professional accreditation programme for leading practitioners in the Early Years sector. This might also be something you might want to consider? More details can be found here:http://www.education.gov.uk/childrenandyoungpeople/earlylearningandchildcare/delivery/b00201345/graduate-leaders/eyps
I wish you the best of luck in your new career.
