Hi, this is my first post and i hope you guys can give me some feedback on my rather strange situation. I am in a situation where i have finished and passed my pgce, however, i have not yet gained qts due to the fact that i still have one placement to complete. the problem lies in that i have moved from the city that i was studying in and have moved to a different city (90 miles away!). I have 2 children under 5 and have had to move into alien land with no support. I am ina situation where i can't go back to the city i was studying in as my eldest has started full time school. I have requested the uni allow me to carry a placement in the city that i have moved to, after endless emails to the faculty for this request, i was finally told that i can carry out my placement in the city that i am in. I was so excited and thought finally its all piecing together (its been a year since my pgce!!) But then i had an email from the faculty saying that they can't find me a school where i am and that i would have to travel 57miles away from home!! My only flaw in this matter is that I can't travel far due to my small children, but obviously the uni did not sympathise with this. I replied saying that this is not possible for me to undertake a placement so far away, it is my final placement and also for a longer length of time, in total 10 weeks. Can the uni do this????? I have undergone so much stress whilst on the pgce course with two little ones, 4 and 2 yrs of age! It breaks my heart that there seems to be no way i can get my qts, which i deserve after all the hard work i put into it! Is there any way this can be done on a part time basis? I dont know where i stand as i am a confident teacher, but can't teach because i just cant get the qts! I have passed all my assignments/presentations/skills tests, but what use is all of this?? what can i do with my pgce without qts?? Any advice would be appreciated, distressed!
