    Is this possible through any of the routes into teaching?*

    I have a business degree which obviously has nothing to do with history. I did A Level history if that counts for anything...?

    Clutching at straws I think but I'd really love to teach history.*

    Unlikely, unless you have substantial work experience within history.

    Your degree needs to be 50% of your chosen subject, but you may be able to do a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course if they're available. That's something you'd have to contact providers about individually.

    A mate of mine was in a history course in Ireland which would have been the first steps to progression into a history teaching job...and he failed high school history.

    History is a very popular pgce course so I would imagine that it is a competitive teaching job to get into.

    I know from my own experience that you could take a postgraduate course in the subject you wish to teach and follow that up with teacher training.*

    I think most teachers have to have a second subject for when needed to fill in for colleague absences.

    You could teach business studies and second in history.
