Hey All I am really confused with Primary courses that offer only QTS. To give you a brief summary : I was successfully accepted onto a PGCE with QTS on Wednesday...decided with the travel and distance I didn't want to go to that particular city. I noticed that a PGCE primary course had come available in my area. I ran them up and spoke to a lady who told me that the course was franchised out by a University in London. So, basically they offer the same course in London, but had decided to fraternise the PGCE out to the area where I live. The course was rated 'Outstanding' by OFSTEAD, and all seemed good. Decided to apply but had no choice but to withdraw all my offers. Today, I was looking at the course again and noticed that on the London website, the course code is different. Under qualification it says 'QTS' and the following :- "Qualified teacher status (QTS) allows you to teach in state schools in England. If you want to teach in the rest of the UK or internationally, consider a course that gives you the qualification ‘postgraduate certificate in education with qualified teacher status’ instead". On the website of the University where I live, the title is 'PGCE Primary' but it doesn't give any reference to QTS. I now have a horrible feeling that this is not a 'proper' PGCE with QTS course. I cannot ring anybody as it's the weekend. Any suggestions?!
