First of all, I would like to preface this post by saying I enjoy teaching English, however it is becoming more and more apparent to me that I would like to be teaching History. I studied English Lit and American Studies at Uni, the latter being heavily History based, however, due to having an uninspiring History teacher at school, I haven't actually got any other qualifications in the subject than my degree. I am currently an NQT and doing well in terms of observations and delivering lessons, however I have been grappling with this since starting. I had taken on some History lessons during my PGCE placements and loved them. My question really is; if I were to apply to History posts in the future, how much would my current English teaching job be a drawback? What can I do to prevent this- for example are there courses available out there? Or would you even advise taking a History A-Level part time? I recognise that I am at the start of my career so I don't need to really rush things, however I would like to start putting things in place now wherever necessary to avoid the awkward questions later down the line! Thank you in advance.
