Hey,

So I had an interview yesterday with Teach SouthEast. I had applied to for a History school direct place. They basically said in the interview that they thought I would be good but wanted me to teach maths. I'm currently in the final year of my undergrad studying history and have always been more passionate about history. I am a decent mathematician (A in A2 maths and an AS in Further Maths) but obviously I haven't done any maths for four years. Anyone got any advice or started teaching a subject they hadn't studied at degree level?

Teach First quite often get people to teach Maths who only studied it up to A level. Maybe worth a post on the TF thread.

I'm afraid if you go for TF and you have a maths A Level you will always be given maths. If you want to teach history pick a different training route.

If you are worried about your mathematics subject knowledge don't be. It will certainly be good enough for an 11-16 school.
