no1linguist: depend on the subject but with secondary MFL it is quite difficult to find job atm. I did my PGCE at one place and then applied all over the country (apart from the place I did my PGCE - personal reason) and got a job hundred miles away. Also, I turned down the job offer at my placement school as well even though it was a decent, supportive school. People thought I was mad to do that but I went to a couple of interviews before that offer and knew exactly what kind of school I wanted to work in. I think you should go into your placement school first and find out if you like the school. You might like it, you might not, make an informed decision then.
