I'm after some advice - I am considering going into teaching but not sure which route to take, if any!

I am a qualified NN but don't have a degree, I have spent the last three years working in a primary school in the Foundation class as both a general and a SEN TA, my head would fully support any further training I wanted to do, but I don't know which route to take:

A degree first then PGCE

Foundation degree then top up etc

Open Uni or local uni

Or another combination

I can't afford to be a full time student so it would probably have to be distance learning

How are the OUs open degrees considered in terms of teaching?

Any advice would be gratefully received

You could consider doing a distance degree, i.e. OU and then looking at a GTP? Then in your last year when ur doing the qts training you would be working. Would the school support this? if so they could employ you under this route.

just a thought. x

Hi Jo1.Sorry not any advice to give about routes to take but know that someone like you who has already had such valuable experience will make an excellent teacher.

I wish my TA would do her training but then again I'd miss her too much!

Very good luck. I'm sure the right path will show itself.
