I did a Primary PGCE with Spanish course, which i loved and got the first job i applied for...in a private school but teaching lots of Spanish. My boyfriend also a MFL primary teacher, was not so lucky and had to do supply this year, but none the less teaching spanish and french. We were promised at uni that we would get the golden hello and of course it turns out due to various loopholes that we won't. Shocking..yes and more so that friends who are in full time jobs in state schools have also been told they wont get it. More annoying than this is that look at any uni website offering Primary PGCE course and they too brag about golden hellos....hmmm. If anyone from Watchdog or the like is reading this I feel it would be a good one to investigate and why not look at "interest free student loans"! humph!
