Moving into Further Education Teaching

    Hello folks!

    I've been teaching for eight years in a school. I have taught both secondary and primary as a supply teacher during this time.

    I have a BA (Hons). 2.i in a humanities based subject and a PGCE.

    I'm looking to move into FE teaching from school teaching.

    I have a little bit of experience of FE teaching through community based teaching. (Level 1 humanities short-courses to adult learners through a local college).

    What would be the best way in becoming a full-time FE teacher?

    There are not many Humanities teaching jobs in FE, so should I consider a 'new' subject. Im really interested in media and business based subjects. I have some experience in the media industry too. Would I need a higher degree in this 'new' subject?

    Really hope that some FE teachers can help me out with some good advice.

    Thanks all !

    @ic21 I would just apply for jobs you see advertised. If you can teach and show you know enough about the subject then there shouldn't be a problem. Around where I am, colleges often struggle to recruit. I guess you are aware of the differences around pay and holiday to schools though?
