start pgce sept 2011 - when best time to start job hunting ?
I would say a few months before but keep an eye out on TES and your LA website throughout.
This probably isn't the best place to post this to be honest. This is the prospective student forum, which means the majority of people here haven't even started on a PGCE let alone started hunting for their NQT year. So maybe repost this on the NQT or Students forum? You'll probably get more help then!
Universities hold teacher recruitment fairs -these can be as early as October and as late as February. Most LA pool applications open from January- the bulk of job offers are made anytime from just before Easter into early June.
Which course will you be on and where?
That's for people just doing their NQT year, it may well be different for PGCEs/trainees because they will have only done one placement by January (in most places!)
I started looking in Feb as I wanted to secure employment as early
