Someone who teaches the subject can correct me, but I'm under the impression that IT courses are largely being superseded by Computing.

To teach in Secondary you would need some kind of teaching qualification (a PGCE/QTS) which can be got through traditional uni courses or the newer School Direct or SCITT courses. Depending on your subject andd degree classification bursaries of various amounts may be available. The government puts a fair bit of info online about all this. I suggest you google 'get into teaching' and you can explore your options there.

To teach FE the options are a bit different. I googled 'teach fe uk' and it brought up some info.

Yup. IT has now gone from the vast majority of schools. Where it does still exist, it's only at KS3 (combined with computer science to form 'Computing') as KS4 and KS5 academic qualifications are in their last year. BTECs will remain but they'll soon stop being counted in a variety of measures so they'll probably be dropped from the majority of schools too.

For a computer science PGCE with an IT background, you may need to go through a Subject Knowledge Enhancement beforehand if you don't quite meet the course's requirements. The bursaries are good and computer science teachers are in demand but the content is difficult to learn and worse to teach without a solid knowledge behind you. If you're willing to learn, there are loads of subject courses out there to prepare you.

Glad you found this. I tried to tag you into it earlier and it wasn't working.
