I am looking to become a Special Needs Teacher in dundee, i am working in a special school at the moment as an assistant (and have for the last 6 years so the experience part is fine). But i have no university qualification and if i can avoid it i dont want to go for four years undergrad. I am doing a Advanced Cert with birmingham uni in special needs teaching, but this does not give you a teacher qualification. I can continue this course next year and study for a PGDiploma. If i acheive that, can i then enter the PGDE course? All it says is a UK degree (english and math are fine) so basically is a PGdip the same a degree?
Have you done any of these?
