    I am in a very confused and bad place at the minute regarding becoming a teacher.

    I have a 3rd class degree in sports studies ( I changed courses and struggled in the final year )

    I have years of experience in teaching roles, from ages five to eighteen. In primary schools, secondary schools and professional football clubs.

    I also have coaching badges in football, Cricket and rugby.

    I have applied for secondary school PGCE on the UCAS website and I have constantly been rejected all year.

    My time is due to finish as a teaching assistant at the football club I work at soon.

    I dont know what to do!!!

    1. Go back to university and achieve a better classification (something I really dont want to do)

    2. Apply next september for primary PGCE (however I would need to do a science GCSE as I dont have one)

    3. Is it possible to be a teacher assistant and have the school put you through your PGCE?

    4. I am that fed up of my constant rejections, is it possible to apply for QTS in another country (Australia? America?)
