Hi there. I am new to TES and any advice you can give would be much appreciated Basically, I have been offered a place to study a PGCE Primary (3-7) in September this year and I am unsure whether to go for it. The main reason being is that I am unsure whether I actually want to go into teaching; however, I am certain that I want to work with children. I was wondering if having a PGCE would be helpful in the long run, even if I don't become a Primary School Teacher. My other interests regarding working with children include SEN and forest schools. Would doing the PGCE be worthwhile in my situation? Obviously, another concern is the heavy workload that comes with the PGCE. I understand that this is reflection of what it will be like within the teaching profession; however, I don't want to totally lose my social life due to the unmanageable workload. I should also point out that I will be moving away from home if I were to accept the offer and am a little worried about being homesick too. I have previously left a uni course due to home sickness, however, this was 4 years ago and I have grown up a bit since then. Seeing as I have been offered a place on the PGCE, I certainly don't want to regret not going for it in the future. I am in my early 20s so it's certainly the best time to do it if I can. I am finishing off my degree in Early Childhood Studies at a local college, so I already have this qualification anyway. Thanks for your help/advice in advanced.
