    Hi everyone. I am planning to do my PGCE next year to change my career. I do love teaching and I would like to choose the subject focusing on those most in demand where school struggle to recrute teachers. Given my academic background (BSc in Businsess and Economics and MSc in International Development) I think I have few options: Business, Maths, Physics, Geography, Computing, Citizenship. I would also partake a SKE in the chosen subject.

    Which of these subjects would make it easier to find a job in an international school at better conditions?

    Many thanks!

    Many countries will only give you a visa if your degree matches the subject you are teaching, so as it stands, you would only be eligible to teach Business or Economics, unless you are starting again and doing a new degree, in which case physics.
