I am looking into this for my girlfriend. She has been rejected for teacher training, based on her qualifications. She has literacy and numeracy level 2, AND has passed the competence exams for literacy and numeracy required to train to teach. She was very upset to find that she has been contacted today by her training provider that she is not eligible to train because she has not got C in GCSE maths and English! This is despite her being offered a placement to teach computing at secondary after successful interview. This was a conditional offer, and she was told that she could start training in September if she passes her competency exams for literacy and numeracy. Unfortunately, she quit her TA job after passing the required exams and has now been left in limbo. She is having to sign on the dole if this is not sorted, and has bills to pay. She is at high risk of being evicted from her house because she will really struggle to pay the rent and the bills while on jobseekers. My girlfriend has been untreated, surely? Does anybody know if she definitely requires the GCSE in maths and English or what she can do to possibly resolve this issue? Thank you!!
