    It might depend on what part of the world you're in.

    To get into an education program in a Canadian university, usually you don't need the most competative average. It's likely in the same ballpark as obtaining admission to a science or arts program. Some universities offer "after" degrees - a one or two year program that you can take after finishing a different degree.

    To get a job, I don't know how heavily they weigh your marks. I think more weight is placed on experience and general teaching skill sets.
