Teaching Religious Education: Drop-in session
- Room 422, School of Education (Building R19)
Passionate about your subject? What to continue to engage in academic learning and research but at the same time, work in a career that makes a difference? What to be challenged every day and have an exciting and fast moving career where you could be in a senior role in 5 years?
Did you know that many people with a variety of degrees teach Religion, Philosophy and Ethics? You could be a historian, studying sociology, politics, psychology or classics! After all, the history of religion, is the history of humanity. Did you know that current GCSE and A level specifications in Religious Studies (Christianity) covers topics as diverse and broad as the ancient Near East, the rise of Christianity, the reformation, the enlightenment, the rise of secularism, new world religions and religious experiences. The other world religion papers are just as diverse.
As such, think about a career training as Teacher of Religion and Philosophy and engaging young people to understand the impact of religion on world history. The RS/RE/Philosophy classroom also gives them a learning space to develop their own opinions and develop as human beings. Many teachers are today working in humanities departments and as such, teach History, Religion and Geography/Social Sciences regardless of the route they trained.
