Teaching Drama and PSHE/PSE?

    Hi all,

    I will be applying for the SNITT GTP in September 2011, when I will be in my third year of university. I'm pretty conscientious and have done quite a lot of work experience and observations, and am currently in the process of writing my own full school SOW.
    I am aware that Drama compliments many of the other humanities subjects, and that PSE is often used within the subject itself. I look at the job pages frequently and have seen that there is only ever a drama job every few weeks that an NQT could apply for. I will be training in straight drama, but would like to offer PSHE too. I was wondering if I taught myself the syllabus and read the relevant books, could I offer this at an interview as an add-on? Would it make me appear potentially more attractive to employers?
    I'm not sure if this process is a plausible one, perhaps it would be moreso if I took on the responsibilty of a form class or PSE teaching during my ITT year - though I know this is unlikely to be the case.
    If anyone can comment on this idea I'd really appreciate it.
