Hello everyone! Hope you are all safe and sound during these very peculiar times. Just joined the tes community and looking forward to sharing ideas and experiences! After using the "search" function of the forum I could not find a similar question to what I am looking for. If there is, my apologies for the double post. Looking for advice on how to get into teaching. Now... to be honest with you I am not sure if I prefer Primary or Secondary, but to simplify things let's just say Secondary Maths (I want both QTS and PGCE). Being a European citizen (Italy) I hold a European B.A. in Linguistic and Cultural Mediation, not sure if it was 2:1, 2:2, I contacted Naric to confirm and awaiting their reply. The degree dealt especially with English-Chinese relations (kinda like the old translation-interpreting degree), with elements of translation/interpreting, business, geography/politics and law. After moving to the UK in 2015 I obtained an ESOL certificate (C1), a TEFL, a CELTA. Now... after looking at the demand/offer of subjects (and scholarships) it became pretty clear that some of the subjects I could offer are either not requested, not in high demand, or are not part of the curriculum (ESL, Italian, Chinese). Since there is shortage of teachers in some subjects, like we all know here (maths, physics, chemistry) I thought why not retrain to teach one of these subjects? I contacted Get Into Teaching but they were not able to answer my question "What can I do with my qualifications?", but I understand they are probably just admin and genuinely not know. Via other forums, articles and blog I found some hope from other people who were able to "get in the system" without a relevant degree, meaning they are teaching maths without a relevant degree. I spoke to this nice gentleman who told me his degree is in Sports Science, but was able to get an offer and a SKE in maths. He now teaches secondary maths. So with this bit of hope I enrolled myself in a GCSE course, taking both maths and double science, exams to sit in 2021 if all goes well. But after speaking to another friend of mine, seems like to apply for teacher training you would need a first subject you are strong in (possibly the one of your degree), and only then you may get a SKE in the second subject you want to offer. Was any of you in a similar position, and could get a funded SKE course in math, even if their degree was not related to maths? Care to share a school or alliance that is more likely to be flexible regarding this? I really hope enrolling for 2 GCSEs was not a waste of time and money. If anyone has a specific provider in mind, or school in the area around Bromley, it would be of great help. Although I must say I am willing to relocate. Thank you everyone again for reading this and taking the time to answer! P.S.: I forgot to add some work background! At the moment I have a full time job in the gaming industry. Before this job I had worked via teaching agencies mostly in Special Needs schools, as TA or LSA. Despite my frequent requests to be put in non-SEND schools, I had to accept SEND offers to pay the bills. I had also worked as an examiner, GCSE examiner, and independent tutor.
