Hi I'm on PGCE Primary Distance Learning course, (five terms). I have the opportunity to fast track onto a shorter route and leave early after three or four terms (have a lot of whole class teaching experience). However if I take this route, I will not be eligible for the PGCE qual and will leave with QTS only. Will this affect my chances of gaining suitable employment? Will it affect any future plans to progress within teaching? Any thoughts or experience of this option would be appreciated.
