Hi I have a PGCE in Secondary Physics, I also did a subject knowledge enhancement course. I have A level physics and my degree had some physics related modules but not much. I have been teaching 4 years at an 11-16 school, I teach triple science physics, it's going well, I'm now a 2 i/c. I love teaching and am very passionate about my subject. I'm starting to think where my career will take me. Ideally I want to be an actual physics specialist and one day teach A-Level and be a head of department or perhaps a head of physics. Realistically to do that I need a physics degree. My plan is to do an Open University degree part-time in physics over 6 years. Will that enable me to reach my career goals? Has anyone done something similar? If you're a headteacher, would I be employable as a head of department/A-Level physics teacher having pursued a physics degree during my teaching career? Thanks in advance for your advice.
