Religious and Media Studies Teaching!!! Good or Bad Idea??

Discussion in 'Scotland - prospective teachers' started by melc04, Jan 4, 2011.

  1. Hi All,
    A little help and advice would be great. Before I begin I would like to say that I have spent hours reading through all these forums on teaching in Scotland and understand the situation in Scotland at the minute in relation to jobs but I am starting from near the beginning so it'll be another 4/5 years before I even qualify but want to know that I'm starting at the right place.
    I have an ordinary degree from a non-uk college in Information Technology with Multimedia. I am going to top-up my degree with The Open University and this is where I need to make a good subject choice.
    While I enjoy Computing it would be the Media Studies section of my degree I would be focusing on and hopefully, eventually teaching. I now want to choose what is the best subject to top-up my degree with?? My first choice would be religious studies and I have looked at courses that I could complete, but am I going down the wrong road with subject choices?? Any advice on a good subject choice would be a great help.
    Also, would there be a demand for Media and Religious Teachers or is the job situation so bad that it doesn't matter what subject you teach, it's bad accross the board??
    I hope this all makes sense and I'm explaining myself right.
    Thanks
