Hi everyone, I'm a current PGCE SCITT trainee in Secondary MFL, generally really enjoying the course and teaching! I had my first interview yesterday for a MFL post and I was rejected due to 'lack of subject knowledge'. I got some feedback, the lesson was fine, and most of the interview was great except for a section conducted in the TL which I just wasn't expecting and didn't answer to the best of my ability. Subject knowledge has never been an issue on either of my two placements, so it's a little concerning to be rejected for a job because of this and I'm going to try and remedy it ASAP using Rosetta Stone and maybe doing an intensive language study abroad in half term. However, I have a nagging feeling that I've chosen to teach the wrong subject. I have a joint BA Hons in MFL and English Language and a MA in Creative Writing (Literary Fiction), and having studied the NC for English, I believe I have the subject knowledge to teach English instead. English would give me the opportunity of working in many more schools than my MFL specialism does, as my main language is dying out in the area I live and work in. I'm booked into speak to my ITT co- ordinator tomorrow and I'm going to ask her about this, and whether I can arrange to go and observe English lessons in my frees and maybe teach a few... My question is really whether anyone has any experience of applying for NQT jobs in a different subject specialism? My understanding is that once I obtain QTS, I can teach any subject I have appropriate subject knowledge of in theory, but how does that work in practice?
