If you’re thinking about training to teach in Scotland this is the group for you. In the TES Scotland Prospective Student Teachers Group hundreds of aspiring trainee teachers get together to chat about interviews, applications and who’s got a place where.
my advice is that it will be better for you to fisrt decide whether you want teaching and if so then my suggestion will be get experience by this i mean go and teach so that when doing your honours uyou have the feeling and you now what are learners experiencing more challenges and once you do your honours you will equip yourself with specific knowledge and skills
Firstly, finish off your degree. Leaving now without honours and wanting to gain some experience instead is going about things a bit back to front. If you want to do primary teaching you'll need an honours degree in any case, regardless of the many routes in you'd be choosing (that might not be the case?)
The other thing is whilst wanting to teach in Africa is a very 'noble' thing to do, and would I am sure be a great experience, if you want to do teach in a primary school in the UK, thats where you should be looking for experience. A year spent volunteering there, or perhaps with a youth programme would probably be better. Not only will that be more in line with the experience you'd be expected to have, it would probably help you to decide if primary teaching is what you want to do. My advice is schedule some time in every week at a primary school (your old one is always easiest!) and do that whilst studying for your honours.
