I would definitely recommend applying for the GTP as opposed to the PGCE. I tried the PGCE last year and found the whole affair a joke. I was rejected from 3 universities. I asked for feedback, expecting them to suggest more classroom experience perhaps. Nope! The only suggestion I got back was to get an A-level Maths. I was a chartered accountant for 8 years before I decided to start working with children. I also have GCSE A* in Maths. When I pointed this out, I was told that A-level would provide more appropriate knowledge. I had applied for PGCE PRIMARY! This year I have gone down the GTP route and although I have had a lot of rejections, it does altogether seem to be a more sensible affair. Also, you are not restricted to a certain number of applications like PGCE.
