What happens if you accept a PGCE offer but then decide you don't want to take it up? Are you obliged to take the place? I've got a place for a secondary PGCE but I've also been provisionally offered a GTP place somewhere else. I'd prefer to do the GTP place, but won't hear back for 4 weeks. The school have said that my application is very strong and I should be accepted by the training provider, but I'm wondering if I should accept the PGCE place just in case? But if I then get offered the GTP place for definite can I then turn down the PGCE place? I know its a bit selfish to do this and not really fair on the uni, but I'm just scared of turning down the PGCE place and then not getting a place for the GTP.
