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.
Halls are an option for PGDE. Strathclyde have post grad halls that have blocks purely for the PGDE students, however I'm not too sure how cheap they are. i'm not sure about contacting other prospective PGDE students re shared accomodation (my tutor never revealed other people in my class, we all met when we turned up in August).
placements are allocated depending on where you are staying and they also consider if you can drive. Strathclyde will not place you in a school that requires more that 1h 30min travelling time. In my class we could ask to be placed in a specific local authority, but that was really for the students who had a home further away i.e highlands, fife etc. this is not guaranteed and those living near Glasgow dont really get a say in where they get placed.
hope this helps :)
