Becoming a PSE teacher?

Discussion in 'PSHE' started by FrostedFlakes, Oct 26, 2011.

  1. I'm going to study Music BEd and get a PDGE and then become a music teacher, how do I become a PSE teacher because I'm going to UNI and at my school all the PSE teachers taught a different subject whilist having various PSE classes in a week, and also is there an increase in salary.
  2. I am also interested to know this. Can you train specifically as a pshe teacher? Are their jobs specifically for pshe or is it taught on the side?

    I wouldn't train as a PSHE teacher - and I am not sure there are such courses. It does really give you enough scope. In most schools (I have taught in 7 so am talking about my own experience) PSHE is taught by non-specialists, usually form tutors. If you are keen to teach PSHE than make sure you highlight this in your applications for schools as many teachers do not wish to teach it, however, as a career option, not great... train in another subject that you really enjoy, e.g. history, maths or whatever that will give you a much better chance of finding a job, but when you are on placement, ask for PSHE experience then put this onto your applications..
