I am currently a university lecturer, in geology. I have had my current job for 17 years, but they are about to close my department, and I have decided that I should go into teaching at secondary schools. Is it too late to apply for a PGCE to start this year? I was planning to do that, and then I realised that the UCAS process is closed. I was very disappointed. But then i thought 'Hang on, this is a postgraduate course, that may be different!'. So now I am unsure.
