    Be prepared to work hard and always be willing to listen, learn and show that you are willing to take on board advice. Eat as healthily as you can, remember that sleep is important and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Same advice as Lillipad! Also, don't despair if you find the workload quite challenging. See it as a means to an end! Don't be initimidated by anyone, especially, sadly, any teachers who view you as a threat! I did my PGCE almost 20 years ago and had mixed fortunes. Hated my first placement and also gave up but then had a brilliant teacher mentor who gave me the confidence to believe in myself! 20 years on, I'm hugely thankful to her and still love my job! Good luck and enjoy!
