    It's whether you're set on teaching and therefore are happy to do a degree dedicated to it or do something that gives you more options but let's you get onto the pgce.

    You can do a Primary PGCE with basically any degree Most special needs teachers will probably be primary trained, but you will have some with secondary experience instead

    I would suggest you do a year's training. At the end of it you get a bog standard QTS with a PGCE to boot. You will get various aspects of SEND training. Once you have perfected your practice, you can then look at specialising in SEND or even just apply for jobs in SEND schools.

    Good luck!
