My current teaching post is soon to disappear, as the subject will no longer be taught in my school, the subject is in demise nationally and very few opportunities arise in my area. It is likely that vacancies may arise in my current school in some other subjects. What routes, if any, are available to fast-track to a different subject (most likely a shortage subject). My apologies in advance to subject specialists who may view this concept as me asking about "dilutey" teachers (Similar to time served tradesmen and fast-track tradesmen), however in my defence I am a qualified teacher and throughout my career i have had to learn new curriculum content anyway. There seem to be SKE courses available, however I am not sure if these are suitable (or designed with teachers like me in mind). Alternatively should I accept the inevitable and look for a non-teaching career, remembering to read @TheoGriff s Possible Other Careers thread.
