Primary School ICT Technician to Primary School ICT Teacher
I wonder if anyone has been in a similar situation as me.
I am a ICT Technician in a primary school and have been so for nearly 5 years, and I am looking at my options to progress.
During my time here I have been dumped into giving ICT lessons countless times due to teachers being ill or not confident enough to each a particular lesson.
So I have been looking at what it would take to become an ICT teacher. I have been told I would need to go through all the same hoops as a person looking to become a newly qualified classroom teacher, which means 4 years training and studying including getting a degree.
The thing is I don't want to become a classroom teacher, I will not be teaching anything apart from ICT.
Has anyone else done things differently or gone down another route?
I became a post 16 Teacher and have been working in education since 1994
My advice to you Steve is, don't do anything you don't get paid for. If they want you to teach ICT set yourself up as a self employed teacher.
