Hi all, I’m a career changer thinking of doing an English PGCE however I don’t have an English degree. I have a 2.1 in Media, Communications and Cultural Studies from a Russell Group university, a B in English Language and a D in English Literature A Level (awful grade I know but I was young, stupid and went through a bad personal stage at the time). It’s my plan to do an English PGCE and teach both English and Media Studies. I would imagine I would be allowed to teach English up to GCSE and Media Studies up to A Level with time and experience. I’ve been in touch with some training providers for the PGCE - some have said I couldn’t get on the course as they require at least 50% English Lit degree, some have said I’d get onto the course with an SKE, however I worry about employability afterwards. I’m looking for honest opinions of how desirable I would be to schools given I don’t have an English degree as I really worry that I would struggle to find jobs and schools would always prefer an English graduate.
