Hello Well done for getting onto the PGCE course. For my preparation, I was told to spend the week before the course started doing a week of observations in a variety of subjects in my local secondary school and then write an essay on what makes a good teacher. If you haven't already been advised to do that, I'd suggest that if you can, it might be worth asking if you can do the same for a day. This time of the year is a bit quiet and the first few weeks of term are really hectic in colleges. Otherwise, I'd suggest that you do the same for a college if you can. Other preparation would be to start looking at the specs for the courses that you'll be expected to teach in your placement college and maybe come up with some questions that you might want to ask your mentor or PGCE tutor when you start the course. Hope this helps and good luck!
