If so, what do you do with it? I am trying to find out what options I would have if I got one. I have been offered a place to start next September. I am interested in teaching Biology/Health courses (I work PT in the NHS) but wondered what else I could do with it. I have also applied for a primary PGCE and have interviews lined up in January. This would be a 100% career change though! With the post-16 PGCE I would carry on working in the NHS and do teaching, or whatever, around that.
I started a post-16 PGCE and met all sorts of teachers and trainers. Happy to post more details after Christmas. So sorry this post is really marking place for now! (Must go and get on with prepping veg and hoovering!)
I have. I didn't get a job straight away, but have been volunteering in the local college teaching English as a foreign language. Luckily for me, a job came up and I start after Christmas. I'm also qualified to teach two other languages, and literacy and numeracy if a position came up.
I love teaching adults (they're usually adults in my subject rather than 16 and 17 year olds). They are usually very motivated and we don't seem to have any discipline problems, everyone is very friendly!
It's not as flexible as a normal one as you can't teach in schools or supply and also some of it not relevant as you can't rely on the over sixteen being there because that want to be and being self motivated
