Sixth formers from five schools in Kent have completed a university course that will count towards a teaching degree. The Gateway to the Professions scheme is part of a pilot to entice young people into public sector careers. Canterbury Christ Church University offers the award to budding teachers, nurses and police officers. It is worth 10 points on Ucas forms. Karrina Gray, 16, a pupil at Swadelands School in Kent, said: "Now I'm sure - I want to be a teacher." The university is urging the Government to expand the pilot nationwide.
