I am a career changer (I used to be a lawyer) but now am I halfway through a two-year PGCE specialising in Young People and Adults. I currently teach A Level Law part-time in a local sixth form college. Despite my professional background and my current job, I do not want to teach Law (A Level or otherwise) in the medium to long term. I would much rather teach history (my degree is in history) and whilst I have applied for several history teacher jobs, I am conscious that I don't any experience teaching history and, indeed, this is what prospective employers tell me. My questions therefore as follows: how do I get experience of teaching history if most schools/colleges want experience first? (To me, this seems a bit of a circular argument.) To what extent am I limited by my previous teaching experience and employment history? Does anyone have any general advice in how I might best move sideways into a history-teaching role? Ta ever so!
