I'm currently studying Business at university. I have an alevel in ICT. When i applied to uni, I wasn't completely sure what career I wanted to do. Now, I'd quite like to be an ICT teacher. Could I get a PGCE in Business or ICT and go on to teach ICT in a secondary school? Or would a Business degree not be relevant enough?

Business degree would not be enough
If you have an A level in ICT, then you may be able to.

ICT is no longer a curriculum subject- it's now computing/computer science and the syllabuses are quite different. I would look at the new curriculum for this subject to check it is still the sort of thing you want to teach- there is now a lot more emphasis on programing and much less on ICT skills.

If you have a look at this and decide it is still for you, Computer Science is a shortage subject, so I would contact some unis with PGCE programs and ask if they would consider an application from you.

Yeah I did ICT at A-Level 2 years ago and I was told it had changed, I was really doubtful at first but ended up loving it!

Yeah I've got a high grade A-Level in ICT and like SarcAndSpark said, there's a shortage so hopefully I could find something

You could apply to teach business knowing that most schools require their business teachers to teach KS3 computing which will involve coding etc. However, it isn't hard.
