Hi I am new to this. I wondered if some one could give me some advice I am feeling really down today. I had applied to do a top up course to gain BA Hons so I could then go on to do PGCE and get a teaching qualification. I gained my EYP in 2013 and with lots of personal health issues with family members which have now hopefully come to an end have decided to go on to do top up. I received an email to say my application had been declined and withdrawn because I have a non honours degree. Where do I go from here? How do I gain a teaching qualification. I am a support assistant in a school covering Nursery and have done planning, PPA cover etc for this but feel I am not getting the recognition for all the hard work I do. I love my job but would like to achieve my goal of being a teacher.
