Hi everyone I'm starting my pgce this September specialising in a childcare related subject. However, I have recently been informed by the course leader that teacher trainees may also be asked to deliver functional skills sessions. My tutor did mention that this would not be compulsorary as it is just my subject specialism I have applied for..however I'm not sure if it would be worthwile me doing it. After doing some research I understand their are likely to be some students with behavioural problems and learning difficulties. I know it might sound strange but I actually enjoy working with these types of students My only concerns are that maths is not my strong point...so how could I tell my mentor if I am asked to do it that I'm not good at maths without sounding stupid :-/ Or how could I explain that I do not wish to do it in a normal way lol, without effecting my image too much? For the English functional skills I wouldn't mind..but I was wondering if there was anywhere I could look to prepare if and when I am asked?? I know I'm thinking ahead a bit ..I would rather save myself the last minute usual panic though as I am aware the pgce will be an intense year.
