    QTS provides the dubious pleasure of allowing you to teach-- it is not linked with a subject or even a phase. Fundamentally the post does not have to be in your ITT subject. However the idea of the training and NQT year is that they are complementary and you would not get any special dispensation in induction for not having trained in that subject/phase.
    You need to consider also the competition for example there are a shortfall of primary induction posts and schools have the pick of trained NQTs.
     
  2. That's good to know! I've got the option of training in an unusual subject combination, so I'm weighing up the chances of being able to get employed afterwards..

    It depends on the subject -for example classicists have the best employment ratios closely followed by Historians. You need to keep an eye on the E Bac as this is guiding the secondary curriculum and if a subject is on there then the opportunities are greater
