I currently work part-time as a Learning Support Assistant in a primary school. I am really interested in becoming a teacher but unsure of where to start. I spoke to my boss (school head teacher) who was very supportive and told me that he would support me in any way he could. I have 9 gcse's grade a*-c (inc maths, science and english) and a Btec Nat Dip Childcare and Education. I have an 18mnth old Ds and I am a single parent. Basically, which training route would you recommend? Ideally, I need to continue working at the same time. Realistically, how long will it take me to become a qualified teacher?
Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you
you can either do a degree which is 3 or 4 years then a pgce which is 1 year very intensive or a teaching degree which is 4 years i think. I did the pgce. You may alsohave to do an access course to go on to degree course. Got to go now but happy to talk more later x
