I am currently doing a Primary PGCE course, however I have had to take a week out of placement due to feeling incredibly ill and both physically and mentally exhausted. I would have been back in school for the next two weeks in order to complete the placement. I have met with my university tutor who has suggested I could get a medical certificate, take the next two weeks off to get myself back on track and then re-do the placement in the summer, and then do the summer placement in autumn. Having had a few days break I feel better already and am wondering if it would be better to follow this advice or see if I can return to school and just complete the next two weeks anyway? If I take these two weeks off, would me finishing the course later than I should have any impact upon my employability (apart form the fact that I obviously won't get a job until later)? Thanks, any advice appreciated.
