Hi!
I will be doing a natural sciences degree at Durham starting in September, which will include biology and psychology.
I hope to get my bsc and then become a college teacher. Do you think I will be able to go straight into college teaching and do you think both psychology and biology teaching would be an option?

Hi there,

If you want to teach in further education you will be able to teach natural sciences and could teach other subjects if the college you go to work in deem your degree to have covered enough of that subject to be able to teach it. If you have A-levels or equivalent in either of those subjects that would help a lot.

You'd also need a teaching qualification, starting with something like the Level 3 Award in Education and Training, to learn the skills to teach in that kind of setting. Once you're in work you'd probably then be expected to move on to a Level 4 or Level 5 qualification to boost your skills while you're working. The FE Advice website has lots of useful information for people who want to teach in colleges and at that level, the link below should give you a bit of an outline of how to get into it.

Hope this helps - Mark
