Hi MM30, Louisa and Rach,
Well done on getting places on the SCITT course! I am applying for teaching this year to start in Sept 2013. I am considering my options and wondered what your experience had been of applying for the SCITT. What was the interview like? Were there hundreds of other candidates? Thanks and hope you both get all the info through soon so you can start preparing for your busy year.
I'm Claire and I've been accepted on SCITT/PGCE 2012/13. Im going to be based at a school in Leicester. Really looking forward to it. Infact im going to do some voluntary work at the school this summer term in preparation - mainly so that I know where things are, who does what and discover my way around the maze of corridors!!
Does anyone know of any course specific books we need to get / read?? I understand that we get a passord to access online resources in July, but id sooner start now if poss.
Hi Claire I am new to all of this too and still have not received anything from Nottingham despite passing the interview in February!
Rachel can I ask when did you get the pack and password? I mean how long after your interview was it?
Thanks for that information Rachel. I went straight onto Amazon and ordered the book!!
Its so frustraiting not having anything in writing yet!! it dosent feel real!!
Clare, you'll have to let us know when you recieve any paper work from Nottingham. If we dont get something soon, i think we should call them.
Wouldnt it be good to keep this, or some other forum going throughout the course? We could exchange thoughts and ideas and discuss any problems we encounter.
What do you think??
I know have you still not heard anything then yet Claire? When did you pass the interview? It is getting annoying now as I passed my interview at the school towards the end of february and still nothing! I have emailed them already but they just say you will get it when you get it - so not much help really :/ I definitely think something like this would be good! I had a little search on Facebook and it appears that Zareeda (from the Uni) sets up a private group on there too for people to get in touch with one another so maybe she will do that again?!
Nope!! still not heard anything despite sending numerous emails. I think Ill give them a call in the morning.
Child development book arrived today though
