Want to get into teaching from teaching assistant

Discussion in 'Teaching assistants' started by shussain87, Mar 21, 2012.

  1. Thank you!
  2. Thank you!
  3. I believe that at the moment the only route into teaching is via a degree course. Would you consider taking an OU degree? From September part time students will be eligible for student loans. This is the route which I am considering.Gaining HLTA status is another option, although the pay is not always significantly higher, especially when you take in to account the extra responsibilities that this role entails.
  4. Thank you for that. I dont know what to do! what degree are you doing at the OU and how long does it take? If you dont mind me asking.
  5. Hi, sorry for butting in...I'm doing an OU degree... It takes 3 years full time and 6 years part time. And alothoug it is cheaper than a brick uni, it is still not cheap. My degree will be Humanities with a specialism in literature. I have 2 modules to do after the one I'm doing.
  6. I'm thinking about the OU route into teaching.
    I did some OU courses 12 to 14 years ago and have 180 points.
    Does anyone know if this means I am halfway to a degree or will I have to start again?
