Hi all, I am in my final year of University studying history, and I plan on doing my PGCE next year with a view to teaching KS3/4 history in the future. I am however slightly worried having looked at the curriculum as I have very little knowledge of most of the subjects. My history degree has covered very little of the topics mentioned, and there has been a large gap between college and University where I was pursuing a different career (retail management, I am 28 and left College 10 years ago), so previous knowledge has been lost. My question then is how important is subject knowledge and how difficult is it to get up to scratch? I plan on improving my knowledge between now and (hopefully) the start of my PGCE course in September. I appreciate I don’t need degree level knowledge of the subjects, but I was wondering how much knowledge is needed, and if anybody has been in a similar position before. Any help/advice would be appreciated!
