Teaching Possiblities with a third

Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by clobo_2011, Nov 4, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I have a Foundation Degree in Graphic Design at a pass level plus a BA Hons Third. What are the ways I can get into teaching? I think a GTP is out of the question as I don't have 2:2 but I do have another degree will that count for anything? Also if not is a PGCE best option, I also have to bear in mind the fact that I have had 4 years of funding from Student Loan so need to do train on job where possible.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Chloe

    This link may help:
    http://www.tda.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/teacher-training-options.aspx I would add though that I think Gove is demanding all teachers have at least 2:2 but I maybe wrong here...
     
  4. Hi Chloe
    You can contact GTP providers by searching www.tda.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/teacher-training-options/gtp/Search.aspx to see if they will accept you onto a course with a third class degree and a foundation degree. The GTP is the employment-based route, so the other options are the PGCE or SCITT, which are the academic-based routes. You would also need to contact those course providers regarding your qualifications.
    You can have a look at www.direct.gov.uk/en/EducationAndLearning/UniversityAndHigherEducation/StudentFinance/Gettingstarted/DG_171574
    For details of financial support for which you may be eligible.
    I wish you all the best for your future career, whichever route you choose.
