    Hello

    I read a while ago that the B'Ed degree will definitely be replaced by new degree programs that will have more of a focus on academic study. I am currently studying for a B'Ed and I wondered what everyone thought about the proposed changes? Do you think that it will affect me when it comes to job prospects if I have the old B'Ed and someone else has this new all singing and all dancing degree which people think will better prepare teachers for their role in the classroom.

    Just wondered what you all thought as it panicked me a bit!!

    Thanks! :)

  3. Can't see it making much difference myself. Given that you don't apply for jobs until after the induction year, I think most HTs are more concerned with what you're like in the classroom and what you've demonstrated you can contribute to the school than with what kind of degree you've got. That's if there's any jobs at all.
