    Hi guys

    Just wondering does anybody know how to go on to study for becoming a post primary teacher. My partner is looking to become a teacher and she has an Honours degree in Architectural Technology.

    She was told that there was an online course that she could do to qualify as a teacher, does anybody know where I could find this course?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    No online course afaik. A grad dip in UL, takes 1.5 years full time. Qualifies you to teach Woodwork, Technical Graphics, Construction Studies and Design and Communication Graphics.
    There is also one at Letterfrack I think but I know nothing about it.
    Online courses are to blame for oversupplying primary teaching and should not be allowed imo. There are already too many teachers searching for work without mass producing more.

    A colleague of mine is doing the Hibernia dip part time while still teaching full time. That might be an option for your girlfriend. I don't know much about it though I'm afraid.

    How is your colleague teaching full time without being qualified? :confused:
