Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by MissRstevens, Apr 6, 2011.

  1. Hi there,
    I met some wondeful applicants on the interview day and I was wondering if anybody else on here is going to S'oton in september? Would be lovely to share any worries/concerns/tips or ideas before we start!

  2. Hi, I'm starting in September too! Really excited but a bit nervous too as everyone says what a hard year it is. Could we email each other? My email is marian@snelmes.plus.com

  3. I'm starting in September too and can't wait!! My email is Amee.plumb@live.co.uk if you wanted to chat!
  4. Hello!!

    I am also starting the Primary PGCE in September! It's really nice to get in contact with people before starting. I am already starting to panic about the workload!! Have you got your Introductory Placement sorted? I'm finding it really hard. My email is amy.trenchard@hotmail.co.uk feel free to get in touch.

  5. Hello, I am also starting the PGCE Primary course 2011. My email is claire_cavill@hotmail.co.uk if anyone wants to get in touch. How has everyone getting on with sorting out their introductory placement. I have got mine sorted now, but sent a lot of letters out to do so. Has everyone started buying the books from the reading list, its quite a lone list!!

  6. Hello,
    I too am starting the pgce in September. I haven't sorted out my introductory placement yet, although I haven't sent off that many emails just yet. Am going to make that my project for the week. Mostly I am worried about accommodation, I need to find some flatmates, preferably postgrads as the year is going to be so busy. I am worried about the work load but loads of people do it so it must be possible! My email is angharad_p@btinternet.com if anyone fancies getting in touch. Would be lovely to get to know people before we arrive. xx
  7. Hi, I finish the Soton Primary PGCE 2010/11 tomorrow! It's so good to get to the end of the course! We've been doing our evaluations etc this week - if anyone has any questions feel free to email - jimmyward102@yahoo. com, I know it might be helpful to talk to someone who has just come out the other side!

    Most useful thing I can say at this point is don't buy the books! If they sent you the same list we did it's a waste of money - one of our feedback points was that loads of people bought a lot of books on that list which they didn't use. Get the Eyres one on English and Haylock's for maths and leave it at that - at least for now. You can always get more later if you need them.

    Anyway, just saw this topic and thought I'd post - let me know on here or email if you have any questions!

  12. Hi there,
    I have an interview for this course soon, and I have to prepare a presentation on a current educational issue. I was wondering if anyone who was successful in their application had any advice on topics? I don't have much clue at the moment :(
