Whether you’re a career changer, thinking about starting a BEd or you’re planning on taking the PGCE route you’ll find lots of advice here. Charlie Taylor will answer new topics containing "Dear Charlie" in the subject.
I was offered a place by the school I'd applied to yesterday, so goodness knows when I will hear something!! xx
My school is Morley Primary in Derbyshire, about 4 miles from my home!!! I'd quite like to specialise in Maths if I can, how about you? xx
Finally received all the forms and stuff today. It actually feels real now!! I sent an email every day to to Zareeda but didnt get any response at all!! At least the pack turned up.
Hope you get yours soon Clare.
I had my interview at the school during the week before the Easter holidays - something like 26/27 March. The school contacted me withing a day or two to give me the good news, however Nottingham just seem to be unresponsive!
The other Issue im a bit worried about is the fact that my status on the GTTR website states in unsucessfull!!! Anyone else having the same issue??
Oh well, Im sure it will all slowly sort itself out!!
I got my pack two days after my school interview!!! I think it depends how quickly the school contact the Uni. The Headmistress informed me that she had contacted Zareeda before telling me that I had got the place :o) I just need to get all my documents into Uni now for checking although I already have a CRB so not sure if I will need another one.
Also what is everybody specialising in? I was hoping to do Maths but I don't have an A-Level in it so not sure if I can. I do have English Lit A-Level so could do English as an alternative.
Now to tackle the finance forms......
I have browsed the internet but nothing really... I may Email and find out some more information before I make up my mind... I think maybe that if you choose a specialism the majority of observaitons and assignments will be on that specialism (can vaguely remember something like this being said at interview!). My first impressions will be that it will be good to have a specialism in something that is NC related especially if your degree is not in a NC as you can emphasise that at interviews etc.
What do you think?
Anyone staying the sunday night at the residential before it starts???? Not sure i'd make it travelling up on the monday morning even though ive only got to come from Leicester!!!
Also, Ive got a feeling that ive read somewhere that we all get issued laptops by the schools or the uni to use for the course. Is theis true?? cant seem to find where i read it!!
Claire I am not sure whether I am staying the night before or not yet as I live in Manchester so not sure how quickly I can get there on the day but I will keep you posted! Also I hadn't heard anything about laptops but would be good if you were right haha!!
Adil I tried to search for the group but I actually cannot find it I looked everywhere but nothing came up sorry! Yes I am still unsure about specialisms but sure I will figure it all out!!
