Hello All I'm currently working in admin as a PA and have done since I left college at AS Level. However after 6.5years and the realisation that the 9-5 isn't my forte, I've decided to do what I should have done years ago and undergo my degree in order to teach! My best and thoroughly enjoyed subjects were English, History and Religious Education and I would like to do a joint degree in History and R.E and go on to teach. I also have a hobby of reading on classical literature and mythology (I appreciate that it may not be in the History syllabus and is a separate subject in its own right). I was advised by a gentleman on the TDA Helpline that I should do a major in RE and a minor in History as History was a very popular subject. Is he right? I am intending to start my studies in February via the OU as I wish to save up and get some school experience before undergoing such a degree. I am also considering getting a job as a TA in a local school (I reside in Nottingham) to compliment my studies - either before or during my PGCE years. At this moment in time, I have not quite decided what age I wish to teach, however I am more drawn to secondary education (hopefully a shadow day/week in a school will confim this!). Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
