I've been lucky enough to receive two offers for the Schools Direct training programme. I'm finding it hard to choose between them so I thought I would ask those of you who are a bit further down the line what you think. Specifically I'd like to know what you would place the most value on (support, location etc). About me: I'm 36 with three children (6,4 and 2 yrs old). I currently work 4 days a week in London (my commute is over an hour and a half each way - so I'm used to long hours and hard work). Offer 1 is primary- general in an Outer London borough. They haven't made the school allocations yet so I don't know where I would be placed but my journey time to school is likely to be between 30 minutes and an hour. Offer 2 is Primary with mathematics in Kent. I know which three schools I might be allocated to so there is a bit more certainty about my placement and the journey time ranges from 40 minutes to an hour. This programme has not been running as long and there is a smaller group of trainees. I am really keen to specialise in maths (although I would be teaching all subjects at primary level) but would I be wise to accept the other offer if they have been running longer and have a larger pool of trainees? Thanks for listening!
