I am currently taking a gap year. I am planning to study Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), at university next year. I was wondering can I become a secondary school teacher after I study that degree and if so what PGCSE would allow me to do that.

Hi there,

Well a primary education with qts course is literally just for primary school teaching. If you wanted to go into secondary you'd have to do either a degree in the specific subject you want to teach at secondary school then do a PGCE in that field or after your primary education with qts degree do a masters in science for example then do a PGCE secondary. They're totally different. Im doing primary education BA and then i have to do a primary pgce after. Though i may change to primary education BEd next year to sprrd up the process of me becoming a primary school teacher
