Hey guys, nice to meet you all. I am currently considering retraining as a teacher and I am just looking at my options and future career paths. I have a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Philosophy, and also took two modules of English in my first year. I would like to teach English (which is related to Philosophy), and it does seem possible for me to do that, although I may have to do an SKE course in English to do so. Most of the PGCE courses I'm looking at in secondary education say that they train you to teach at ages 11-18. I would really like to teach English at A-level, but I am wondering what the job market is like in practice. As an NQT, would I be able to teach English at A-level without a degree in the subject in most schools? By competing against teachers with English degrees, would I be limiting myself to the less desirable jobs? And what about teaching in sixth form colleges? I have looked at a few sixth form jobs which say they will consider NQTs, but would I have a chance applying as an English teacher without an English degree? I know that a lot of this will come down to the discretion of the headteacher of a particular school and but any advice I can get can get is much appreciated. Thanks!
