    I currently work for the police but would now like to become a PE teacher.

    I do not currently hold a degree so would like to study full time and do all the nessacary training as quick as possible.

    I've read the advice on the government site but because of all the different routes in to teaching I'm unsure where to start.

    I'd preferably like to study with the OU however am I right in thinking if I so this I would not be able to apply for any grants other than the student loan.

    I am married and have a mortgage so I would probably need some financial assistance as well as a part time job.

    So where do I start? What degree should I do? What's the best way in for me? And...what financial support can I apply for?

    Also History would be my second subject, would I have to study this also? I'd actually rather do my degree in history than PE but I don't think that would make much sense, would it?

    Lots of questions I know but any advice would be appreciated.


    I believe there is a programme which alllows you to do a HND which is like 2 years of a degree in your chosen subject and then get a QTS.
    Either way you will need to study for at least 2 years + experience
