I failed my math pgce last February and was granted a repeat teaching placement this year. There are 7 of us on the course this year without a placement in a school and we are still waiting to hear the outcome. We have been prohibited by our teaching provider from finding our own placement. It is is possible that a number of us will be unplaced in a school and then we will be unable to collect our pgce and become math teachers. Is this a trend in math departments and are there less resources to train students and would you rely solely on your ITT provider to find your placement?
