UK degree in primary teaching

hello, im new to the site; but i was reading about the girl who wanted to know about the PGCE's in UK v's Ireland etc. I'm actually a third year student in a BA (QTS) with geography degree in Liverpool Hope University; due to graduate in July. I am doing the CCRS module and due to finish this then too...I also got a C2 in Honours Irish LC. I thought i would have to do my NQT year in the UK and then think about coming back...I would love to come back to Cork; where my heart is, but my boyfriend also doing same course is not keen because he has never done Irish in his life and not prepared to do SCG course. Is it possible for him to get a full time teaching post without Irish?! He specialises in Geography also; therefore able to swap with some teachers who are not keen to study geography for that part of the day? Any comments?

Perhaps I just don't understand your post but are you training to be a Geography teacher or a Primary School teacher?

I don't think Secondary teachers need Irish unless they are Irish teachers. If you have achieved QTS as a secondary teacher in the UK, you can gain recognition in Ireland under EU agreements as a Secondary teacher.

If the QTS is primary then that's another issue.

Can't see that working. Even if it was allowed, Irish takes up an awful lot more of the school day than Geography. Add in that Irish is a part and parcel of most primary schools. Things like "sit down" "open your books" all in irish, even if it's not a Gaelscoil. sorry, can't see any principal taking on the hassle.
