    Hello Everyone!


    I really need a good advice. I'm thinking of going to PGCE/D&T/RM.
    I am a graduate Architect,


    Can design buildings, draw, use some graphic programs, and build models from
    paper-based materials mostly. But I don't know much about making things from
    plastic/metal/wood.


    Will they teach on PGCE program all this skills, or do I have to do some
    additional learning first?


    If yes, can somebody recommend where can I do this? I was searching a lot on
    the internet but did not find the answer yet.


    I also heard that it should be a second subject in D&T. I can cook and
    saw, but not professionally of course. Is it enough for studying, or I will
    need to be qualified in this?

    but realistic in this cut throat age.


    littlemissraw,
    you have produced and shared some stunning resources yet you struggled to find
    job in the UK.


    If
    the OP submitted an application for a job with such spelling errors and
    vagueness then it would be people like me as a HOD who would not even consider
    the application. Rather a waste of
    everyone’s time especially the year required to undertake a PGCE.

    I think as the TES community we should measure our efforts with people who join that day, ask expansive questions, give no thanks and no response. We give our valuable ideas and experience and in return...............?

    Very true, I've been reading a lot in the Jobseekers forum for the past 18 months and it can be quite depressing viewing, but there must be some jobs for someone (although I've almost given up of ever teaching again) so we don't want to scare off all our possible D&T talent [​IMG] x

    If I get out of the wrong side, then I hit a wall, probably why I was cross Caroline but then again I can't be positive all the time[​IMG]
    We'll have a little bet then...........I bet Gala 21 does not come back to us, what do you reckon?[​IMG]

     
  7. Hello again,
    Thank you very much everyone. Sorry for the wrong spelling, I feel sorry for this, but yes, English is not my first language, so sometimes I use the automatic spell check, which did a wrong job for me this time:)))
    And... you are right, I will not come again to get an advice on this website. It's too unkind, I'm afraid.
    P.S. Thank you for some of you, who was more positive than the others.

    Gala21 you did return!!
    Sorry about my responses. Its just that some times people join ask one question, start an entire debate and I have noticed that they never return. Good advice is given, advice which in some cases takes time to impart and is always free. My comments were designed to challenge you to return and follow up on the advice given.
    Good luck with any decisions that you make with regard teaching and please do not be too hasty with leaving this forum.
    Cheers
    Spencer

     
  9. Thank you, Spencer,
    Thank you for the good advice. I will come back if I manage to get on SCITT programm or find another way to become a teacher.
    Cheers
