Hi everybody! I am currently a TA. I intend to apply for teacher training later this month (September 2020 cohort). I absolutely LOVE Philosophy, Religious Studies and Theology (and have a BA in the subject), but lots of existing teachers have put me off, saying that subject specialists aren't valued anymore, and that jobs are extremely scarce. I have been advised to train to teach English instead, and to branch off into teaching RS/RE as an additional subject if/when the opportunity presents itself. As I have an MA in English, this is feasible...but though I love English, Philosophy & Theology is what I love most. So is everybody right? Does the fact that I'm a subject specialist make it any more likely that I will find a job as an RS/RE teacher? And if not, shall I just do as I have been advised?
