Hi!
I'm french, I live in Richmond (working as a nanny and studying at the same time to take the Cambridge exam).

I have a degree in French literature and my wish is to become a french teacher abroad. So I know I could prepare the PGCE and I would like to have some advice about the PGCE, how universities do they make a selection?
If some people knows the universities in Cumbria or Oxford brookes, and studied a PGCE in these universities I'm really interested to know your point of view about the courses...
Any informations about PGCE is welcome!! Thanks!

I applied to Warwick Uni for Drama Secondary last year and didn't get in because I 'didnt seem to want to teach enough' - I'm not sure what they wanted, maybe a sob story X factor styleee? I wasn't 100% confident on the interview and probably didnt know enough about education......though how you're meant to know everything I dont know, surely thats why you'd dcide to study it at Uni?!

I've since decided that I want to teach primary, and am looking at applying for Primary pgce in sept....I've got experience in a Primary school (a few days) and lots of experience OUTSIDE of the classroom (holding drama workshops/clubs/LAMDA lessons). my degree is in performing arts. I have applied for countless TA jobs as I know that most pgce places to to TA's. I've recieved very positive feedback about my application and have been told that it's simply too competitive.

Is there any uni that runs the primary pgce that is seen as 'easier to get in to' as my 1st choice states on the website that they recieve hundreds of applications per place they have available...

thanks :)

Hello

What is the process to become an A-Level Chemistry/Biology teacher at a college? I'll be doing my PGCE in a secondary school this year but I'd prefer to get a job at a college but I've been told I cant do that straight away? My degree is in Biomedical Sciences.
Hope you can help

Hi,

I want to know what is the requirement for Primary PGCE for overseas graduate.

I have GCSE English, Maths and Science. Do I need A- levels as well for PGCE application ?

If yes, what subjects do I need to have A levels in ?

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

I might be a bit of a weirdo - I'm currently a lecturer (aged 48!), in geology, at Kingston University, but I am hoping to start a PGCE/SCITT in geography, in September. I will have to do an SKE, over the summer.
