Hi Im looking for some advice and help. I am going to try break down the questions so I hope they will still make sense. I am due to start a ProfGCE in post compulsory education/ lifelong learning, in September, but I have also been considering applying for a PGCE (postgraduate cert in education) all I have managed to find about the differences for these courses is that the first is level 6, and the second is level 7 and gives you credits towards a masters. Does anyone else know of any other differences? I have also read that after each of these course I can apply for QTLS, do I have to have this before I can work in FE? And I have also heard that if I do obtain QTLS along with either the ProfGCE or PGCE that I will also be able to work in secondary education, does anyone know if this is correct? If I did want to have the option of working in secondary education as well as FE would I need to do a placement in a school as well as a college while I study? Thank you for any help or advice anyone can give.
