thirties male thinking about teaching

Discussion in 'Professional development' started by lewismia54, Feb 19, 2012.

  1. I'm in my thirties, have always wanted to teach but my life went in a different direction. Having been made redundant last year from a job in the charitable sector, I am now considering all possible options. Three years of studying and associated financial implications is causing me much concern, and I really would love to hear from others who have already trained later in life or who are also considering teaching but need to do a degree.

    I'm presuming from that last line you do not have a degree, and need that BEFORE training to teach - correct?In that case, that may mean 3 years of subject based degree plus 1 year teaching qualification (although there are ways this 1 year can be done "on the job"+paid)
    What post 16 qualifications do you have?
    What age/subject do you wish to teach?
