After the unexpected, sudden and short notice of the abolition of the primary PGCE bursary, I now believe that it has proposed that it is reintroduced in 2012. Is it possible that there may well be the reintroduction of the bursary for those starting this September as it seems grossly unfair that just one cohort could potentially be penalised. The lack of bursary is causing me much worry (big mortgage, two children) especially as I gave up a well-paid job to bark on teaching. I have just been awarded a First class degree, which under the proposal would entitle me to £9000 bursary in 2012, whereas I will get nothing at all and would have been happy with £4000 as this would have been the amount that I had budgeted for and therefore would have made the PGCE year financially manageable. I understand that it is to do with demand of teachers, but surely this isn't going to change in just one yer and so appears to be a rather lame excuse. I would appreciate any comments.
