I'm a PhD student in English Literature, due to complete shortly, and seek advice on entering the teaching profession in post-compulsory education. Can anyone explain to me what my options are, at this point in the year, in terms of applying to courses, schools, colleges, or any other routes in to PCET in teaching English? Further, what funding might be available, considering my high quality degree grades? I have teaching experience on undergraduate courses going back three years. I've looked into a number of routes and made tentative enquiries to local universities regarding training, but I've been bombarded with acronyms and not exactly been welcomed in to the teaching fold. There seem to be a bewildering variety of courses and options, a lot of which don't necessarily apply to PCET training. Further, what are the job prospects in FE? One of the primary reasons for my decision to consider other teaching routes is the fact that HE is changing in a way that does not necessarily encourage me about my academic future. I might have more security as a teacher outside the HE sector. I thank you in advance for any help you can give!
