I'm embarking upon a career change. I took my A levels 20 years ago. I got an A in maths. I then studied the first two years of a three year physics degree, dropping out for non academic reasons. I spent 10 years working as a journalist and then setup as a consultant in a related field. I'm now doing a maths degree at the OU and would like to teach the subject to A-level. I know that I'll need a degree before I can get a PGCE. I was wondering whether it is possible to get experience of teaching in the meantime? Are schools likely to be interested in an unqualified person with maths tuition? Is there a national policy on this or is it down to the individual school and if that is the case who should I contact? Thanks.
