Hi, I was 3 years through a Bed in Scotland when i decided i couldnt cope with it anymore. 3 years of teaching had taken its toll and after a really bad placement in Year 3 i decided my 4th year would be too much to bear. I have since done a PostGrad in Careers and work with secondary school children in school. I have started to feel like i could cope with teaching once again. Its my ultimate goal to work in early years and i have been told, even though i was 1 year away from completing a Bed in Primary Teaching, i will have to do the full PGCE. I want to focus on early years but i am apprehensive about the PGCE as a programme as i know my Postgrad in Careers was really difficult and this did not involve long placements. Would you have any idea of what the PGCE would be like to be on realistically and wether its a suitable choice. Also, if you choose to do early years, is there a chance you could receive a placement in other Key Stages other than early years? Thanks in Advance to any replies..... P.S- I WANT TO COMPLETE EARLY YEARS PGCE IN LONDON, NOT SCOTLAND.
