Hi all! I'm starting as a Teaching Assistant this September (very excited!), with a view to embarking upon a teacher training course in 2020. I want to submit my application prior to Christmas 2019, however: 1) I have an MA English Literature, but not a BA. Will I have to do a SKE course to make up for this? 2) Will the school disapprove if I ask for references prior to Christmas? After all, I will only just have started the job! I'm leaning more towards the salaried SCITT- how soon is too soon to ask the school if they will support me with this? Any advice would be much appreciated!
