Primary Teaching Degree! I'm worried about job prospects! Advice please?Watch
I am considering taking a primary education degree with science specialism at uni however after hearing and reading all the stories in the news from previous years about there being 'too many teachers' etc etc I am put off by it. My question is ...
1) Is the job prospects for primary teachers still as dire as it is?
2) Are you? or do you know anyone who is currently a trainee teacher or NQT in this same situation or feels the same way?
P.S I have done plenty of work experience in this field so i have an insight as to what the job involves, its the job outlook thats my main worry!
Some people choose to do supply for a year before seeking a permanent role and others just fancy a year out.
I've actually heard there could be a shortage of teachers this September as not all training places were filled as a lot of people weren't keen to try school direct in the first year.
My undergrad was art history at Nottingham.
Another example/situation i have heard of is supply teaching that although it is alright for a short while people have found it hard to break the cycle to find permanent roles (from what ive read and heard not my opinion).
