    Hi,


    I'm an ICT teacher in my NQT year. I have completed one term of it but
    I am now back on supply and looking for work.


    Business Studies is a personal interest to me and I was wondering how I can
    branch into this as well. I taught a few lessons of Business Studies on
    my trainee year but I don't feel I can apply for business studies jobs based on
    this.


    Furthermore, I can't say I specialise in Business Studies for supply work as
    I only have a few lessons under my belt. However, how else can I get
    experience? I have a Business Information Systems undergraduate
    degree. I would like to be an ICT & BUSINESS STUDIES teacher.


    Any advice is much appreciated.

    A couple of things you could consider doing:
    - Talk to your supply agency/schools you do supply for about your interest in Business Studies - there may be times when they can't get a Bus Stud supply and would happily use you, or they might have a Bus Stud/ICT teacher off, in which case you'd be a better bet than someone who has no interest in the other subject.
    - If you have some days when you can't get supply, could you arrange to do some observation in business studies? Obviously it's difficult to predict when you might have a spare day, but if you can find a friendly head of business studies in one of your schools, they might be open to setting up some shadowing on the basis that it might get cancelled at short notice.
