11 years ago I walked onto a PGCE for D&T as they were pushing Electronics as a subject and I studied electronic Engineering at uni. I got a job teaching ICT as there was no Electronic jobs being advertised. Once the school realised my specialism they had me teaching Electronics GCSE as well as ICT, but with no Electronics being taught in KS3 and being given a ridiculously small budget (we had to de-solder circuits to reuse capacitors, resistors, etc), I didn't get instantly good results and it was cancelled as a subject after two years. I think partly because I laid out what budget I would need to run it well. I took a pay cut to go into teaching as it is something I always wanted to do but I wanted real life work experience first. I have been teaching ICT and computing my whole teaching career but I fear that Computing will go the way of Electronics. Its the same trend. They need more teachers so throw a bursary at it. People realise what a crappy profession teaching can be and fly off back to industry. Schools stop advertising for jobs and move on to other subjects. I hope I am wrong as I know schools that do insane work in Computing but I fear I'm not.
