Hi, I left the armed forces 4 years ago and since leaving I have toyed with the idea of teaching at secondary school level. My questions are: 1, I would be starting from scratch as I don’t have the quals I.e GCSE but I have equivalents, NVQ, BTEC and functional skills. So what route would be available or best suited to me 2, As a mature student I have commitments like mortgage and young family, would it be possible at this late stage to change career. 3, another idea I have had toyed with is college teaching in the public services subject, what are the requirements for this level to become a college tutor. Are the requirements more or less than training to be a secondary school teacher. Thanks in advance.
