    Could anyone tell me if, once you have QTS, you are qualified to teach subjects other than your PGCE specialism?
    This may become more common under the changes to the curriculum; for example I'm hoping to study to be an art teacher but wonder if I could, if necessary, also teach DT?
    Also - if you study a Secondary PGCE are you also able to teach A-Level? Or is that an additional post-16 course?
  2. There have been teachers in my school that have trained in say English but have taught KS3 Maths or Media Studies in the past.
    If you have QTS then technically you could teach anything, however I know A Level Physics is something I could never get my head around!
    If you do a secondary PGCE you will be able to teach A Level fine but most probably only in your specialist subject or a complemetary one.
    Good luck!
