Hey, just a quick question about laying out experience and explaining reasons for leaving. I generally worked/ doing voluntary work/ in education full time until the months before my PGCE due to caring for my dad in 2008 (June -September unemployed and always put caring for a relative as my reason). Backstory -When I was applying for my PGCE my mum passed away in March 2008, I continued to do voluntary TA work until my dad needed help in June and accepted a PGCE place for the 2008/2009 academic year. I was in autopilot and managed well up until February 2009 where during my second placement I broke down and quit it. My university gave me the option to retake my placement and the remaining one next academic year So I was PGCEing 2008-2010 with one placement completed and a tester placement in 08/09 and remaining 2 completed 09/10 year. Questions 1) Is it wise to put my PGCE as a 2 year one 2008-2010 (looking like part time one) as I spent the first year doing my actual PGCE and essays and the 2nd year waiting for doing remaining placements, thus couldn't get a job. 2) I always put my work history as recent first at the top then going down- is this correct? 3) I have heard of NQTS putting their PGCE placements on their employment/work history. I am not keen on doing this as a)my placements are September 2008, June-July 2009, Feb-March 2010 and June-July 2010 and look odd with gaps! b) My uni screwed up admin so they are all KS1 placements. Sorry I keep asking questions, just trying to get it perfect Thanks!
