Hello,

I am studying environmental science and we cover many topics from ecology and water chemistry so was wondering whether this qualifies me to be able to teach science with biology for a PGCE? Or doe my degree subject only make me eligible for teaching geography? Again, as I said, my course covers a range of scientific topics but also has a lot of human science elements to it such as law and economics.

Thank you,
Grace

I *think* you can, but you might need to take Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses...?

SarcAndSpark might have some ideas :ninja:

I’m sure you can, as said before an SKE may be required though.

Once you're qualified you can teach whatever you are knowledgeable enough in. Initially, when training to teach, you'll need to half half of your degree in the relevant subject or subject area, so maybe a ske course will help you get onto a pgce for science - biology.
