Hi, I'm currently working as a TA in a secondary school (a fantastic one it must be added). Recently my head said he would like me to become a teacher and agreed to fund an OU degree. I am over the moon and will start in October. My problem is that I can't decide between Geography and English. I much prefer Geography lessons over English lessons: the subject matter, the energy in the classroom and the flexibility of how the subject can be delivered. Yet, English is a core subject, so would that make it more of a safe subject? I suppose I am looking for assurance that Geography will be an important subject for many years to come, and that the government won't suddenly decide it isn't quite as important as other subjects. I know English will always be secure, and since I also have an interest in English, I wonder all things considered, which would be the right choice. I have a matter of days to make this decision, thanks for any opinions you can offer.
