I am thinking of getting a PGCE in FE hoping to teach Alevel or maybe even GCSE students.
I also wouldn’t mind teaching GCSE students as in college you get to teach students from KS4/5.
I Just have been looking at other people commenting about how a PGCE in FE has not been beneficial for them and they felt like it was a useless degree, mainly because they never achieved a QTS.
I did think about going in secondary pgce to teach psychology with a QTS as I did an undergraduate in early childhood studies, but I wouldn’t want to teach years 7- years 9.
With a FE, you also have a choice in teaching higher education but you would need to get a masters.
Anyway, If I did decide to do a PGCE in FE, and wanted to later acquire QTS so that I can be qualified 🙄, what are the routes to this and will SFE help me?
I would also like to get masters later on, will I still be eligible for it?
I do currently work in a FE college as a LSA supporting students in GCSE and Alevel course/ equivalent.
sorry, if this is a long message to read, I just keep on thinking about this and it’s been on my mind because I would really like to do this but I don’t want to regret it after doing it.
Please if someone could help with my question. Thank you
