I am currently studying on a Foundation Degree in Education and will complete a third year 'top up' to gain a BA in Primary Education with QTS. So, at the end of the third year I will be 'free' to find myself a placement as an NQT. However, I was concerned that my route into teaching is not traditional and maybe this will act against me. I have spent many years in the primary classroom as a volunteer (never employed as a teaching assistant as that wasn't 'for me'.) and it felt right that I could remain in the practical classroom getting the experience whilst fitting my Uni course around it, hence selecting the Foundation Degree with top up to BA rather than going down the straightforward BA route. But, in essence, the qualification would be the same at the end of it all as far as I can see...thanks for any advice. Would love feedback from others who have gone down this route too!
