I am considering a change of career to become a secondary school teacher with a Physics specialism. I have visited a couple of schools to get some experience and check that I am at least in some way prepared for what I am letting myself in for! The school I visited most recently were really positive and have implied that I should seriously consider them an option when I come to apply for teacher training - either PCGE or via schools direct...the issue I have is that I have a holiday booked in the middle of September this year (booked a year ago before I had seriously started considering moving over to teaching) and this prevents me from undertaking my PCGE / starting with schools direct this year. I had resigned myself to having to wait until next September (2016) but one of the members of staff at this school said that they thought Jan - Jan training cycles were possible rather than Sept - August. I was wondering whether anyone else had experienced this? I have not managed to find any material on the net to support this. Thanks in advance for any light anyone can shed on this for me!
