From what I've been hearing the workload between these students on placements is vast. Secondary PGDE's are complaining they are expected to create 13+ lessons a week; along with teaching material; resources etc. Whereas, Primary PGDE are only doing a few lessons a week, and most of the time spent supporting the class teacher. Is the PGDE/PGCE Primary really a much easier choice?. Anyone any experience to shed some light on this?.
