    Hi there,
    I'm applying for Primary/Early Years PCGE this year and I believe the deadline is september. I'm struggling to gain experience (volunteering) at the moment to support the application and i'm away on holidays next week for a month meaning i'll only have a few days left.

    I'm really worried as I don't want to take a gap year. Is there any way it can be worked around?

    Many thanks

    Hey there,
    I'm sorry if I can't be of much help here - as an international about-to-be-undergaduate I had to look up what that course exactly is ^^ But maybe it helps if you apply anyway and do some volunteering while you're on holidays if that's possible? If i understood correctly the course deals with childrens education and such, so maybe working half a day in a Kindergarden might be an idea?

    And if that doesn't work out, a gap year isn't too bad.

    In any case I wish you good luck
