    Hello. I would like to become a History teacher. However, my degree is in Theology and Anthropology. Do I stand a fighting chance at being accepted onto a History PGCE course in light of this disparity?

    Hi, I just asked an adviser at Get Into Teaching the same question (except I'm a Philosophy graduate and am considering teaching English or History). He told me that the requirements of different training providers vary, so it's best to get in contact with the training providers themselves (i.e. the PGCE History department you're looking at).

    For some subjects, including the sciences and English, you can do a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course (SKE), but unfortunately, this isn't possible for History yet!

    From what I've read personally, PGCE History is meant to be pretty competitive, but I think you would stand a fighting chance with your degree as it's closely related. But best to get in touch with the training providers for a more substantive answer. Hope it all turns out okay!
