    Hi all,

    I wondered if anyone knows whether a candidate would be considered for a teaching position in an FE College within the Business department (i.e. teaching level 2 and 3 Business courses) if they have a Foundation Degree in Business as opposed to a full Honours degree? - Most job descriptions state that you need to hold a degree level qualification, and as year 2 of the Foundation Degree is at Level 5, would this make it acceptable?

    Thank you in advance,

    I have known of other subjects being taught by people without a degree in that subject. A lot of it is about having some experience (even if only voluntry placements)
