Hi all, I have a dilemma and I welcome comments and suggestions of options as I try to work out what to do. I want to be a Computer Science teacher, this has been a very long term goal, interrupted by other life commitments but I am just about to finish my PhD and have been applying for PGCE courses through UCAS. A university based course is the type best suited to me, I have thought long and hard about that and explored options already. I also have a disability and would need Disabled Students Allowance - I’ve never got that arranged in less than 4 months, so I need to have a place by April/May. I’ve hit a problem. My application timed out - the reason I’m told is that they have had so few applicants by this point they are considering not running the course, they haven’t decided and will still consider me until I accept a different offer, but I can’t wait long due to DSA. So I looked elsewhere, and found that many courses reserve the right not to run if they don’t get a quorum. How do I find a course that will actually run? I think if I contact them I’ll probably be assured they will just because they need the numbers. I am wondering if it would be better to train in a different subject just to be sure of a place. Any suggestions? Anyone else in this situation too? - I am wondering how widespread the problem is - I am so frustrated right now and don’t know where else to turn for advice - I know that there is a need for Computer Science teachers, I am very keen to be one and well qualified but getting that training place is elusive.
