Hello! I want to know if there are any FE teachers out there who have: a. Completed a PGCE in post-compulsory education and training but decided FE is restricted or just not for them. b. Taught in secondary schools without QTS. c. Completed QTLS and got a job teaching in a school. I have taught in both schools and FE colleges for three years and as I specialise in GCSE and A level I have found that I enjoy teaching in schools more. I have only done long term supply English teaching in schools but to anybody who doesn't know what that entails it is taking on the full role of an English teacher for a couple of terms or longer. This has been really insightful and I prefer school to FE. I want to gain qualified status as I have a BA and MA in English and a post-compulsory PGCE plus 3 year's experience teaching. I can get QTS but it is £3000 and I need to be employed full time in a school. The QTLS route is cheaper (£500) and claims to be equivalent. Does anybody know anyone that has done this? Has it worked for them? Is it what it claims to be?
