Can anyone help me?

My dream is to teach sociology in a secondary school. I'm planning to do a degree in Sociology and Education.

I've researched for PGCE in Social Science but there isn't a lot of choice. Am i researching something wrong?

They have other PGCES like in English and Religious Studies so why not Sociology??

Will i need to do another PGCE first or can i do one in general education?

Thanks!!! ☺️

Sociology is not really taught at gcse, just A level.

Most sociology teachers also teach another subject to justify a full time job.

Sociology is taught at GCSE in many schools... But as above said, you'll likely have to teach a 2nd/3rd subject. The Sociology teacher in my department also teaches Government and Politics, Health and Social Care and History. In the past, I've taught RE, MFL, Health and Social Care, Sociology and Psychology.

You should be able to find pure PGCE Sociology or PGCE Social Sciences (which would give you better cross-subject experience)
