Applying for a Subject you don't teach...

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by stumigoo, Jan 23, 2011.

  1. Let me explain. I am qualified to teach Religious Education, this is what I received my PGDE in. However my undergraduate degree is in Psychology and Philosophy and I receive a 2:1 MA, both of which I have since delivered as discreet subjects in the schools I have been working in.
    I am becoming more and more determined to persue a teaching career abroad, and have since seen postings for Psychology teachers, so my question is regarding both my eligibility and my chances of securing a post.
    I am currently the only Psychology specialist in my school and I have spent the last few months delivering non-certificated Psychology and developing a certificated Psychology course for next year, something that the school has supported, so I hope that any application for a Psychology post would be welcomed because although my PGDE is in a different subject I can also deliver Psychology (and Philosophy). I also thought that on the plus side a school would look at my qualifiactions and see that I can deliver three subjects and that they would see this as a positive thing.
    Any help, thoughts or people who have maybe had an experience with something similar would be appreciated!
