    Hey guys

    So basically I just submitted my application through UCAS for PGCE Secondary Maths having no classroom experience. I tried to get it, but it was a lot of hassle and i'm so busy with exams and coursework rn.

    I do however have a lot of experience in teaching since I volunteer and run workshops where I teach children how to program lego robots. I also had an internship last summer where I was running sessions and again teaching children by myself and other 2 students.

    Does that count as teaching experience or I will be rejected just because I didn;t have classroom experience mentioned in my statement?

    That'll probably count in your favour. It wouldn't hurt to get more classroom experience (just email/ring schools, they'll be happy to have you).
