    Hey all, I'm guessing this has been asked before but I'm hopefully going to start studying a 4 year MEng in Civil Engineering with Construction Management this September - would doing the first three years (BEng) allow me to teach Maths or Physics with the 'Teach First' programme I've heard about? What other subjects would I be able to teach?

    Thanks to all who reply

    My understanding is you don't get to choose what you teach if you join Teach First - I believe you are allocated to a subject.

    "Teach First may place you to teach in:

    • Either a subject related to your degree

    • Or a subject that you achieved either an A or B grade in at A-level

    Should you join the programme Teach First will allocate you to a subject, in which you will teach at least 50% of your timetable, in the following way:

    If you have a degree or A-level (at A/B grade) in a STEM subject (these are Science, IT, Design Technology and Maths) you will be allocated to one of these subjects. Please note you must have two science A-levels to be considered for this subject."

    If you were to train to teach in the more conventional way, I would suggest the Engineering Diploma, Design Technology, Mathematics and Physics would all be suitable choices.

    Well I'm doing maths further maths physics and history so i could teach any three of maths physics or history, but then civil engineering would open up geography or even geology
    thanks for your help mate
