Teaching a second subject.

Discussion in 'Cymru - education news' started by geraintabertawe, Jul 9, 2013.

  1. Hi.

    I have just completed my teacher training as a teacher of Welsh, secondary school. Although I have a degree in my subject and of course, a PGCE, I have no A levels in any other subject. I would like to teach another subject in the future, possibly outside of Wales and I was wondering if it would be a worthwhile activity enrolling to do an A level in English at my local college (£200 fast track, 3 hours a week, for AS level).

    What is the opinion of others?

    Kind Regards and thanks in advance.

  2. As schools look to save money, flexibility IS desirable, but for core subjects like English schools will always prefer to hire subject specialist where possible.

    It is the wrong time of year now, but look at the adverts on eTeach etc to see what the desirable combinations are. RE, PE and history seem to crop up quite often. MFL would be an obvious choice, as you already have the teaching skillset required.

    If you have a post for September, I would concentrate on that. You'll have enough on your plate with your NQT timetable and MEP.

    Pob lwc!
  3. Cyngor da iawn. Diolch am eich ymateb. :)
