    Hi,

    I'm a first year IR and Politics student who wants to go into teaching. I realise that politics isn't taught at the vast majority of schools, so I was wondering if I would be able to train as a history teacher, or possibly an RE teacher although this seems unlikely to me, as I am also deeply passionate about these subjects and could see myself teaching them.

    So would this be possible? Could I teach with my degree in these subjects?

    Thanks

    I think for secondary pgce your degree has to be 50% of what you wish to teach
