    Hey all!

    I am a third year student studying French at university, however, in the past year I have come to realise that I really dislike studying and speaking the language lol. I would really like to pursue my true passion which is art! However I have no idea whether it is viable or not for me to become an art teacher considering that my highest qualification for art is an A at GSCE....

    I would complete my BA French degree and then possibly do a teaching post-grad, I am just wondering whether it is even possible for me to teach art at a school considering that I have no high-level qualifications in the subject. It's a huge hobby of mine but I have nothing to prove proficiency in it!

    Do secondary school teachers generally need a degree in their subject? Any help would be great!

    To do a secondary PGCE in a particular subject you usually need at least 50% of your undergraduate degree to be in that subject. There are sometimes exceptions made in shortage subjects like Maths and Science but Art isn't a shortage subject.
