Hello everybody, I am facing a dilemma and need to make a decision in the next few days? I have been accepted in the Citizenship PGCE at Canterbury, and also in France. My heart would lean towards Canterbury, but I have been warned by non-specialists that Citizenship was entrusted to Humanities or Social Sciences teachers in their schools. Indeed, I checked the job section of this website and saw only 15 offers nationwide for Citizenship posts, against 115 offers for subjects like Humanities, Social Sciences, English?. I have also read that are roughly 200 NQTs in Citizenship arriving on the job market every year. The ratio job offers/applicants scares me a wee bit? I also read that most of the graduates of Citizenship PGCE find NQT posts teaching Citizenship with another subject. So my three questions concern the employability of NQTs coming from PGCEs in ?Citizenship?. Do they stand any chance against those coming from ?combined? PGCEs like Exeter (Citizenship with Humanities?) or Manchester (Social Sciences with itizenship?)? 1 - Did people on ?Citizenship-only? PGCEs get to teach humanities/social sciences on their placements? Did it then allow them to be short6listed for humanities/citizenship, social sciences/citizenship, or purely humanities or social sciences jobs? Or do people need a degree or an A-Level/GCSE in a humanities/social sciences, on top of a placement experience, to be short-listed?* 2 - And then, do you get enough experience and academic guidance when teaching these subjects on placement during the Citizenship PGCE to stand a chance against humanities/social sciences specialists at the interview? 3 - Finally, if by any chance an ex-PGCE student from Canterbury University was reading this message, roughly what is the percentage of Citizenship graduates who found a job directly after leaving Canterbury university? I must decide this week and am getting scared by what the information I gather here and there? your insight on any of the above questions would be very much appreciated!!!!!!! Good luck to all of you and thanks for reading me, Maya * (Bonus question: Would a foreign (French) A-Level do? ?
