Hello everyone
I am entering my fourth year of child and youth studies degree. I am planning on applying for PGDE primary. However, I am worried over how competitive this is and that I might not get in. What else has anyone done with this degree?
Thanks in advance

Could you give me a link to the course you're on?

If there's any specialised practice in particular age groups (e.g. early years) then you may be able to get a job in the nursery school sector. If teaching is your passion and you wouldn't mind the age group you may be able to secure a position teaching sociology at various levels in KS4-5 (plus likely some humanities lessons for KS3 in a secondary school).

Non teaching related, any generic graduate job would be available along with any job not requiring a degree.

Related to your course there may be some administrative or policy research positions in local authorities around education (or local safeguarding children's boards) - as well as other education-based organisations like strategy groups, publishing companies, examination boards etc.

But if being a primary teacher is what you want then stick with plan A and make that your goal.

options might include... youth worker ... higher level teaching assistant .. apply for a SCitt Training as well as applying for your pgce ... working in a children's home ... family support worker and probably more !

your uni will have a careers centre I'd say get an appointment there and start finding out your options !
