Hi, I'm currently on a secondary maths PGCE. The pros and cons of this year have been massive, but something I have found is that you really learn a lot about yourself in this year (I know that may sound a bit pretentious but it's true!). I think I've realised that I've not developed enough personally to be standing in front of a class telling them what to do with their lives. As such, I plan to finish the PGCE year and then take a year out. It's certainly a decision I'm still mulling over but I'm thinking that's the best strategy. I do plan to go travelling (somewhat of a lifelong dream) and feel that'll really help with personal development, but in the way of professional development (both as a means to become better at the job and reason why I've a year gap on my CV) I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion of what to do with the other half of the year? I've not much experience with SEN, so would that be good? How about supply? I'd really welcome people's suggestions or experiences with this. Thanks.
