    I've been struggling to find a job ( I'm 16 btw) and am worried that it is too late to apply for one now; most places are full. I was thinking of teaching languages (french and spanish) because I have gcses in them. But I really don't know how to go about teaching younger children languages and how to put myself out there. Any help? Fankoo

    Thumbs up to wanting to teach languages! If you're only 16 then the best route to get into teaching is to get some A-Levels and then either do a bachelors degree in education or, as I have done, get a bachelors in modern languages and apply for a pgce after graduating. Every language pgce I have come across wants at least A-Level language skills if you want to teach languages. With my degree I also got the chance to live abroad for a year which improved my french way beyond what I could ever have imagined. Good luck to you. It's really refreshing to hear that someone your age likes languages!

    I agree with Netts, A levels and uni is your best bet.
    But I had a part-time job as a teaching assistant in a primary school French club, teaching French to a small group.
    I rarely used any knowledge above GCSE level, so I'm sure you could do that. But it was only 1 or 2 hours a week and it seems like these kinds of jobs are really hard to come across. It was advertised in my college. Good luck
