Can I teach Welsh if my degree is in French and Spanish?

    Hi all,

    My degree is in French and Spanish but I have also learned Welsh to a high standard. I'm concerned about job prospects with French and Spanish in Wales so I wondered if I could teach Welsh instead. Do you have any advice?

    I finished my degree this year and will be doing a PGCE (I hope!) from September 2016.

    It would depend entirely on the school.

    I have no personal experience of Welsh schools. My grandchildren in Wales go to a secondary school with 3 streams: English, Welsh and Bi-lingual. The latter two all have native speakers of Welsh teaching the Welsh-language medium subjects. The teachers of Welsh to the English stream, one is native one has learned Welsh.

    But that's just one school.

    Is your Welsh better than your Spanish? That's the thing to ask yourself.

    Best wishes
