Ooh how interesting I have wondered about this on and off ever since having to withdraw from secondary PGCE during horrendous divorce 12 years ago. I've been increasingly caught up in care of elderly relatives in recent years but at 49 in a few weeks I'd love to know if this door is forever closed. Hope you get some helpful answers
I graduated at 45 and got a job. Primary. You will stand a better chance of getting a job if you think 'I have stacks of transferable experience, I work hard and am organised, and because I am NQT I am relatively inexpensive - they're getting a bargain' than if you think 'I am too old'.
