I have wanted to teach at secondary level for quite some time, however during my degree I became quite ill and subsequently failed a year. I had to take a year out due to medical reasons. I began my final year well gaining a 1st and 2:1 in my first semester modules and was doing some volunteer work, tutoring and had signed up to the university placement scheme to begin in the second semester. Unfortunately I became ill again and subsequently missed the placement scheme and some exams which resulted in me gaining only an ordinary degree. I would still love to teach but am unsure of how much of a chance I stand regarding actually getting a GTP or PGCE place. I am also unsure of which subject to concentrate on as my degree was in English with French. I initially thought English, however have been advised that it would be better to concentrate on FML although I thought you needed two languages and I only have A level German, not degree level. If anyone could give me some advice I would be very grateful, Many Thanks.
