Hi everyone I just read on the tes website that the government has announced plans for PGCE students to spend an extra six weeks in schools from September 2012! While I think this is BRILLIANT (I start in September), I am also worried that my uni won't be ready in time and won't be able to provide high-quality placements etc. The report said that students at the Uni of Cumbria for example will have to spend time in secondary schools helping year sevens because there aren't enough primary places! Just wondered whether anyone else is concerned, or if you're just focussing on the positive of more time in school? (Which will be much better...) Any words of reassurance would also be appreciated!!
