    I am currently finishing my undergrad in Psychology (BPS accredited) and going onto be a primary teacher via Teach First.

    I do plan to stay in teaching for a few years, as I know I will enjoy it. I already have quite a bit of experience working and volunteering with children and those with special needs.

    I was just wondering if anyone who has completed Teach First has gone on to become an Educational Psychologist? Is completing the programme considered worthwhile experience?

    And for those who became a teacher via any route and went on to become an Educational Psychologist, do you have any advice?

    Were you able to stay in teaching while you dedicated time to apply to postgrad courses (for how many years it took to be successful)?

    There are a few on my course who were teachers before applying, mostly for about 4 years or more i think
