Primary to secondary

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by hjlewis350, Jan 9, 2012.

  1. Not sure if i am posting in right part but i am an NQT qualified in July 2011 but live in South England where teaching jobs are very competitive and i have struggled to gain a job.
    I completed a BA Hons in Primary Education specialising in Physcial Education which was a full degree incorporating QTS.
    I have 8 years experience in working with children 18 months through to 18 years through sports coaching and myself used to be an athlete so have always loved sport.
    My question is am I qualified to teach senior school? As i am thinking of broadening my horizons and applying for PE teaching jobs at senior schools as I feel I have the relevant experience in which to do this but am also willing to volunteer at some local schools to gain more experience
    Thanks

    As the other posters state you can get a post in either sector however you still need to complete induction and no allowances are made for your NQT year if you are teaching in a different phase. For this reason the majority of teachers tend to change phase once induction has been completed. You need to research the situation for secondary PE posts in your area as this varies according to the output from local universities and the demand from schools. Generally PE posts have been in shorter supply the last couple of years.
