I hold a BA(hons) 2:2 in Drama and an MA in music but having spent some time in a school I'm not keen to teach these subjects.

I would like to teach food tech because I got As in it at gcse and A level and I have a genuine passion for it and would feel more comfortable teaching this because I'm not the arty type person I was when I chose to do my degrees.

All unis have advised me that to do food tech pgce I need a degree in this subject and I'm excited to say that I've now got a place on an MSc in food.

Would doing this degree help me get where I want? I can afford (with difficulty) an MSc but absolutely not another BSc/BA.

Does your experience as a teacher really vary much depending on the subject you teach or am I being fussy?

Advice please.

You definitely don't need another undergraduate degree.

But an MSc (or pgcert or pgdip?) would allow me to teach a subject right?

To the best of my understanding, MScs are not normally considered proper teaching qualifications anywhere in the world.

You need a QTS which you can get through PGCE/SCITT and an array of different options. Normally those options asked you to have a degree in the teaching subject. But not sure if you really need to do a Masters. Perhaps with spending a year volunteering should be enough? A master is a huge investment so make sure you have no other options left.

Ah yeah pgce has definitely got to be done.

The unis running pgce in food tech say I need a degree in food to get on and that's the thing really.

In theory I could apply for drama or maybe music pgce for this September but whether I want to teach those subjects is another matter.
