Hi, I'm finishing my PGCE now and although my school experiences have been positive, and I think I'm on for mainly goods in the Teachers' Standards, I'm worried about my lack of enthusiasm for teaching. I'm finding it hard to come up with interesting activities (doesn't come naturally - I think my lessons are quite boring), behaviour management (something I'm not very good at in a school where this isn't a big problem) etc. etc. and am generally not very motivated. I love my subject, I don't mind working with adolescents, but am not passionate about it, and I don't think I have what it takes to get through an NQT year. The positives I see with having a teaching position (security, variation, not sitting in front of a computer etc.) are not the big reasons why people should teach. None of the things of having a teaching post (own tutor group, own classes, own classroom etc) excite me. I am worried that I don't have any of the passion for the job that make the sacrifices (time, stress etc.) somewhat worthwhile. I had been applying for jobs for September (some interviews but no offer yet) with a horrible gut feeling all the time. Finally admitted to myself this weekend that I don't want to work full time in a Secondary School and it felt like a big relief. Plan is to stop looking and step back and have a break and maybe look for something in January, although another part of me thinks I should "get it over with" asap, which again is not the right attitude, I know. I'm going to finish the course (only 5 weeks) and have spoken to university about this. I was told that if I wanted to look into teaching adults or FE later, or moderating GCSE exams, that I'd need an NQT year. Do other people feel like this? The people I've asked on my course are looking forward to the things I've mentioned above which don't really interest me at the moment. Thanks for any advice.
