Hi all, new here. I'm looking to begin a PCGE in Secondary English teaching in September. I decided this would be a great career path, but then I began reading about actually doing the PGCE, and there seems to be more negativity than positivity. How you won't have a social life out of it, how there's so much pressure and expectation, how so many people drop out in the first semester alone, how you get so little sleep, the usual. Now, I'm 29 years old, I've already been to Uni twice (including to do a Master's) so I'm experienced with having a big workload academically. I also work in a very stressful job where there's a lot of pressure on me. How would I manage? Thanks for any pointers.
