I would love to go into primary education after uni but I'm currently doing an undergrad Biology degree. I have a decent amount of work experience in Schools and a bit of voluntary work but I'm worried that I won't look favourable to employers if my degree is in Biology rather than Education? Obviously after my degree I would take a primary PGCE, however I don't want to get my hopes up if its a big issue that I'm not on the Education degree path.

Can anyone advise?
Thanks

Biology would be fine as a first degree and it's likely you would appeal to schools as people with a science background are rare in primary. Primary teaching is more competitive than secondary teaching, but if you're a good teacher, you'll find jobs.

It will be fine. PGCE courses are relatively easy to gain access too with any good degree and if you have an aptitude for primary teaching getting work will be no problem
