    Why not art and drama?

    In my area, Drama often comes under 'Creative or Performing Arts' depts and often is linked with music. But Art would also come under that same title. Look at jobs for either or even ' Creative/Performing Arts. and stress what extra subjects you could offer.

    What is GTP? I'm a US teacher so am unfamiliar with many of the terms here.

    I'm a great fan of the OU and have just completed a course with them. Studying this way is hard work and its not cheap but it is a good way to add an extra subject to your teaching portfolio.
    Unlike some correspondence courses the Open University is a well respected body and its qualifications uniformly recognised.
     

  5. Graduate Teacher Programme. It's another form of ITT (Initial teacher training) when someone works as an unqualified teacher in a school for 2 years I believe in order to gain their full teaching qualification (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).
