Whether to apply for post of Business studies teacher, advice

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by shades14, Jun 6, 2011.

  1. Hi Guys,
    Position has came up for Business studies teacher with some ICT in another school.
    I have QTS, and have just completed induction as an ICT teacher, My contract is annual and coming to an end.
    Would I be considered for Business studies teacher or is it not worth applying? I have no experience at all in this field.
    Any advice please (especially from H.O.D.'s, would be useful)

  3. It is always worth applying if you did a Business degree or something like that BUT and it is a big but there are lots of unemployed business qualified teachers out there. In my area for the past 3-4 years the student teachers we have had have really struggled to get jobs and some of them have been outstanding.

    The main reason for this surplus is that schools have been re-jigging subjects so much and business seems to be getting push down the pile.

    I guess it really depends on what area you are in and how well you can sell the ICT part.
