Hi all, I am just putting the finishing touches to my primary pgce and scitt applications and wanted people's opinions on references. I am currently doing an MA in Drama and my tutor has agreed to be a referee which is great but I've also done 2 sessions volunteering at a primary school (started in the Jan term and it is an ongoing thing). My question is....do I ask the school teacher I have been working for if I can out her down as my first referee or stick with my uni tutor. It would probably look better to have the teacher as she has seen my working with the children first hand BUT I have only been working with her for a couple of weeks and as lovely as she is, I feel a bit uncomfortable asking her as I don't really know her. Also, I know my uni tutor really well and could impress on her the importance of getting the reference done ASAP whereas, again, I would feel a bit uncomfortable pressing the teacher for time. So, what do you guys think - teacher first and lecturer second or the other way round? Thanks in advance!
