Hi all, its my first post on here but I'm just not sure who to turn to for advice..... Basically I have been offered a conditional placement on a design and tech PGCE. Its something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember but never thought I had the ability to do it.... So I have just completed a DEGREE in CRAFTS... now you'd imagine I would have left that with some basic knowledge of materials/machines etc,,,,, but it seems we have been taught very little, I started a placement today for the Student Associate Scheme in a pretty middle class school, the school actually have better facilities than my uni!!! Sitting in lessons for my second day and I feel completely out of my depth!!!!! Not only this lack of subject knowledge is concerning me but the condition of my PGCE is passing a maths test. I have been advised to do the Maths for Intending Teaching test at Liverpool John Moores.... I have had no time to study and the test is in 2 weeks !! Its going to cost me over 100 to get there/take the test and I may fail anyway?! I have very little money and just wondering, DOES IT SOUND LIKE IM WASTING MY TIME??!! Has anyone had a similar experience??? I did some work experience in a more 'working class' school and loved it! The naughty kids, the atmosphere, everything was really enjoyable!!
