    I am in my final year at university, and i have now decided that i would like to go into teaching, but i don't want to teach in a primary or secondary school :/

    i would like to teach in a college.
    but i'm confused as to how i would become a college teacher... would i have to do a PGCE? -__-

    Also, i want to do a masters in Philosophy/Politics or something related to Politics after I graduate.. but a lot of people are saying doing a Masters is just a waste of money....
    so should I just go straight into teaching??

    Any advice will be appreciated!
    Thank you! x

    You would do a PGCE or equivalent in FE. This is what I did. I did my degree, then a PGCE and am now teaching at a college while doing my masters.

    I would never say a masters is a waste of money, but you don't need on to teach at college level.
