I am hoping to begin an ITT course in September 2017. The subjects where my heart lies and where I am most strong academically would be on the Social Science (SS) side. This leads me to believe that teahing SS at GCSE level would be a good teaching move to make.
However, my concern is that the SS subjects, popular as they may be at A-Level, are not core GCSE subjects and are not taught in all schools.
Consequentely, I may be running the risk of struggling to find schools that need a teacher in the SS. Also, there is the possibility of acquiring a job and the job becomming redundent if the schools budget gets tightened.
Is there anybody who has done or is doing PGCE Social Science course at the moment knows what the employment climate is like for teachers in the Social Sciences.
