Pregnancy and PGCE - eek!

  1. *bump* any advice gratefully received!
  2. Hi SD. Firstly, congratulations! I've no experience of this myself, but as you teach a practical subject, I think you need to tell school. Ad it's a placement, you aren't officially employed by them, so not really sure about risk assessments. Could you speak to your mentor and get some advice off them? Also, as you're PGCE, it might be worth seeing a union rep to see what you are entitled to. When I did my PGCE a girl on my course got preg and she was due the September after we finished. She already had a job lined up and they were happy to keep her post until she returned, but we did English, so teaching wasn't physically demanding. It's good you're due in the summer, as you can have a year with you baby and start the following September. Sorry about no paragraphs, on phone.
