I am currently studying for a photography degree about to go into my third year. I quite like the idea of becoming a secondary teacher for art and design. I just wondered if anybody else has gone into this with just a photography degree rather than one in art and design?

I need to retake my maths GCSE to apply for a PGCE anyhow, and was pondering perhaps doing an AS in Art alongside it to attempt to strengthen my application, or even complete the full A Level in it (I say only AS because I could then apply for the PGCE a year sooner). Would this be a good idea? It's going to be mental finishing university and then going to study GCSE & AS Level qualifications, but I feel I may need some sort of experience in art to strengthen my application as I don't even have a GCSE in Art, just all my photography qualifications including a BTEC ND Photography.
I was thinking that instead of doing an AS/A Level art I could perhaps get a placement in a school for the year I retake my maths, specifically in art lessons.
I'm not sure what would be best for my application. Obviously I'd get some placement that year anyway, but not sure if that's good enough alone.

Opinions?? Thanks
