    Does anyone know timetable for PGDipEd secondary school at University of Birmingham? Do students get to decide which school to attend, and how long before do we find out before the course begins?

    All I know that it begins in September. Placement is Monday to Friday and uni days is on Saturdays. There's also lectures during half terms.

    Where are you looking to Train? Ive just graduated with a first and thinking of doing this too. apparently they're accepting students in computer science at this time without any interviews as there's quiet a shortage of computing graduates who want to become teachers.

    Hi
    Has anyone bought a teachers' planner? I'm considering getting one of the Pirongs ones but I'm not sure how useful it will be in my training year.

    It'll be as useful as it is to an established teacher. Some use official planners and some use the backs of envelopes. If you're the kind of person who uses this kind of thing, then get one. If not, then tailor make something that suits you better. There's precious little scope for independence in teaching nowadays, so seize one opportunity when it comes along.

    I find my planner very useful, so whilst you're working out the sort of teacher you are I would recommend getting one. Try using it for a while once you're teaching, and if it doesn't feel right you'll know not to get one next year.

    Hi meme12. No BG was my first choice and I was very lucky to get accepted on the evening of my interview. I had my interview and was offered the place in February on the condition that I passed my QTS skills tests, which I completed in May 😊 I have an induction day on Monday! Just wondering if anyone else would be studying there or studying art and design?

    No, your course provider sorts that out on your behalf.

    There may be other assessment days (although it is quite late in the year) so I'm sure they'll understand. They may potentially ask for a doctor's note, though, so it may be worth asking for one just in case.
