    Hi all,
    I have applied and been offered places for two courses through SCITT programmes in Bedford. These are through Pilgrims Partnership and The Bedfordshire Schools Training Partnership and I am in between making a decision out of the two as they are two great courses with pros and cons. Has anyone on here done either course and has any advice or experiences of them?
    Also, I know from interviews and open days of what the courses leaders and staff have told me to expect from doing a PCGE but I would like to hear first hand experiences if how you found your art PGCE, what you liked, disliked, found hard or challenging? All advice, reviews and honesty is welcome as I would really like to know from experience how you found your art pgce, or even your scitt course!

    Many thanks in advance, I look forwards to hearing back

    I applied to three schools for computer science and got three offers. Each school was excellent would have been perfect for me. In the end I chose the closest one to me for practical reasons. It also happens that this school is the most "normal" of the three, the others being well and truly located in Cheshire-Set land. Go on your gut instinct. It is only for a year and I am sure you will come out glowing from wherever you study.
    Good luck!

    Interesting, I'm with Pilgrim as well - not for Art though

    Did you attend the cohort day last week?
    or join the FB group? (see sig)
