    For the initial application, UCAS contact details are all you need. I contacted a uni to ask if I could send a written as well but that is at the discretion of the uni.

    For my uni, Derby, I was asked to bring a letter from the school when invited to interview. It's worth getting a letter from the class teacher if you're not going to be there later, just in case.
    Thanks for your advice. Fingers crossed, if I get a placement, I will make sure I get a letter.

    I'm starting on Monday and the nerves are certainly creeping up on me. I've had some really good feedback from my pre-course placement so I'm trying to remember that! :-)

    It was brilliant. We were able to see different ways of using the outdoors in learning as well as getting to know each other better. Lots of different activities and things...The perfect end for a great (but overwhelming and intense) induction to the course. :-D

    It's only been a week and a half but I already feel like I've learnt so much!

    Anyone else doing schools direct PGCE route? I got a last minute place on this year's course as someone dropped out. Very intense but I feel like I have learnt so much which is obviously great. I'm doing Primary so it is a very varied curriculum which I love!

    Wow, that's a lot to take in on such short notice!! Glad you're enjoying it so far. :-)

    I'm on the traditional PGCE so I'm yet to go into school.
