    Calpurnia, you have been observant. Most of the NQTs (not all) through our department in the last six years have confessed to at least one of these reasons. So many are seeing teaching as a short-term internship, which is surprising considering the amount of work involved in a PGCE and NQT year... obviously those TV adverts are making a good impression. My family always know when one of those adverts appear on the telly from the crazy, hollow, maniacal laughter that comes from the living room.

    My family kept saying that I'd make a great teacher.

    I didn't train until my mid thirties.

    Before that, I did a variety of other jobs, but teaching is/was the most fun until Gove.

    If this post indeed originated from India, then that's just charming.

    I suspect the clue is in the tags.


    Something in India maybe?

    Maybe teachers in India are respected - valued - allowed to do their job....?

    I used to quite like it here. If they want more teachers they should cough up for time machine. I'd go back.

    Maybe he's talking about mental health nurse training. Part of the great GoveHunt employment axis.

    PG. Pre and Post Gove. Britain's twentieth century version of education censorship and certification. If only they'd certified him. But then there aren't enough mental health doctors in the UK, thanks to Jeremy. Ho hum.

    Yes but there's no link to whichever training course they're advertising. Maybe that answer would be obvious to anyone in India.
