  2. Hi Sue

    I tried to join such a course in the Midlands (didn't even know about the bursary until I read your post)

    Though I've been out since 1983(!) I was told I was 'too qualified' when I said I had been signed up by a supply agency but not yet taught.

    I'm ignorant of the Nat Curric, marking, IWBs, working with TAs, and have a shortage subject, (physics) but have worked for years as a youth worker, similar but different. Though I'm reading up like h*ll it's still daunting.

    Is my experience atypical?

  3. I was told by another training provider that you would be considered if you had taught for less than 30 days, including supply teaching, in the last year. They seem to be looking for Maths and Science. I'm ICT so not in a shortage subject. I think other training providers will take on primary teachers and other secondary subjects.
  4. Our next courses start in January in Cambridge and London, and from what you say you could be eligible for a place, please contact Sue on 01476 512780 ext 311,EM Direct Office will be closed from noon tomorrow until 4th January 2011for the Christmas break.
