    Hi all just looking some advice. I originally started to do a degree in technology and design teaching and after the first year decided that teaching was not for me. That was three and a half years ago and I have completed another degree and am still looking to be a teacher. If I decide to apply for a PGCE would it go against me that I had already started a teaching degree. As you can imagine selecting a course at 18 can be difficult and now that I am older I have a better idea of where I want to go in life. Has anyone every done this? And help would be great.

    I can't imagine it would, so long as you can show your wide range of experience and passion for teaching now.

    :ditto:

    Although if you didn't want to teach then, what has made you change your mind now?

    Can't see it being a problem. You could just say that you wanted to deepen your subject knowledge further before teaching, or something along those lines...
