Back up plan if PGCE doesn't work out

Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by weaselwithin, Dec 20, 2010.

  1. Don't give up on the PGCE yet! Ask for feedback on your interview and application process, you can learn from this and hopefully get a place with your second choice.
    There are other routes, such as the GTP, or you can apply to more PGCE courses if your second choice doesn't work out. You could also take a year working abroad on something like TEFL, or as a TA in the UK. But whatever happens, don't give up, everything happens for a reason, and you can learn from every experience
    Good luck

    Evaluate everything! Improve on everything and look at the available institutions.

    Good luck!
