Is it too late?

Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by rach_p88, Jun 12, 2011.

  1. Ive always considered teaching, and since graduating last summer and having a year off, I feel that now is the time to do it! Ive researched into doing Secondary School Teaching, specialising in Textiles Technology, but is it too late to apply??
    My local SCITT course would be the Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset East one. Has anybody applied and been accepted already?
    Any advice would be grateful
  2. I know our local GTP programme has closed for applications already though GTTR will still accept applications until August 31st (though some unis will of course be full by now). Best thing to do would be to contact the provider directly to see if you've missed deadlines and, if not, if there are still spaces on the course. If it is, maybe look at getting a job in a school- it can really boost your chances at getting onto your course in the next round of applications.

    I really agree with the op about getting some experience in a school. even if there are spaces left on your course for this year i would advice applying next year so that you can get some experience. i applied a year later so that i could get some experience and it really pays off. i learnt sooo much and am much better prepared than those who have not got much experience when starting the PGCE
