In the future I’d like to become either a primary or early years teacher, I’d like to do a PGCE after I’ve completed a bachelors degree, however, I cannot decide between studying history, sociology or psychology. The A Levels I am currently doing are history, sociology, religion and health and social care. Would anyone be able to offer me some advice?

Do you have a preference for any of these subjects? I would pick the one you are most interested in, whilst at the same time, getting experience working with children or working in schools. After you graduate, look to doing your PGCE.

To my knowledge the PGCE is for secondary teaching. To become a primary/early years teacher I believe you need to a specific undergraduate degree in education. Thus, if you want to work with primary and early years students, you might have your choice made up for you regardless...

04MR17 knows more about the education qualifications, and might be able to advise you a bit more specifically (and correct any possible incorrect information provided by me above!).

PGCE is actually for all levels. Though it's more common for secondary teaching. :yep:

The undergraduate Primary Education BA (with QTS) route is growing to be more and more common, though it's not the only way in.

OP, consider doing a Joint Honours course if you reqlly don't know. I imagine there to be quite a few Sociology and Psychology joint honours courses out there. Same with History and Sociology. There'll be less History and Psychology JH courses available but there are some.

If you don't know what you really want then you can start one and then specialise after a year or two.
