    I haven't been able to find a summary either ,just been reading through loads of articles . The guardian has some good ones. Now I'm just trying to formulate an informed opinion , I want to find a happy medium between the negatives and positives about the changes to the curriculum.
    haha same! it's quite hard though isn't it there's just so many differing opinions but I guess they're looking to see how you interpret everything and how you articulate it all. I'll be so glad when it's over!

    thank you for your reply!

    I got an email form the IoE and they sent me two attachments on which I had to prepare a presentation. I was given the interview question and key areas that I should include from the attachment files. After having read through the two articles and making notes to answer the question I don't know how I can fit that all in for 2-3 minutes! I guess I have to manage it somehow!

    what are you using to read about current educational issues?

    do you mean the IoE at manchester met? are you going for primary or secondary? I've been using all sorts really, i usually just google whatever I wana read about and then loads come up. TES is good for opinions and blogs, ive subscribed to the magazine too now, guardian education has lots of articles, also have a look at the union sites so NAHT, NUT and NASUWT although obv all those are very opinionated views on the issues. but mainly just articles through googling. good luck!

    Has any one had an interview at the University of Manchester yet, or is anyone going to have one on the 10th. No one I know has gotten to interview stage, and I can't find any tips/guidance, or even anyone else who has applied on the internet?
    Is it for primary? The day is really long and a lot of waiting around. Don't worry about the tests they are okay without any revision. Be prepared to answer a lot of scenario questions and questions based on inclusion!

    Good luck

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    No, they are quite different, the first, PGDE, allows you to teach in post 16 education, although some schools will allow you to teach 14-16, whereas technically a PGCE allows you to teach at any level of compulsory education

    Unless you're in Scotland, where a PGDE is essentially the same thing as what England calls a PGCE.

    It's just I have an interview for Liverpool john moores and they are calling it a PGDE for early years.. Would this mean if I got a place I'd only be able to teach early years primary in Scotland? I'm sure I applied thinking it was a PGCE

    Hmmm... are you sure it's not a typo? I know that sounds silly but it doesn't make much sense otherwise. Like boggleman said, in England PGDEs are for post-16 teaching.

    The only reason PGCEs are called PGDEs in Scotland is because they decided to change the name as 'diploma' matched up more with the level of qualification that a PGCE gives you.

    Postgraduate Diploma in Education is the one in England, which is for post-16.
    Professional Graduate Diploma in Education is the Scottish one which is their equivalent of a PGCE.

    So the idea of a PGDE in England in Early Years doesn't make sense. Come to think of it I'm not even sure you can do one of the Scottish ones in Early Years either - I'm not sure they count that as an acceptable focus up there.

    Well that's what I originally thought that it was a typo but in the PDF they attached to the email it refers to PGDE throughout. I might email and double check, especially cos it says PGCE on ucas.. But I've just checked their website and it says 'PGCE Early Years (3 – 7 years) PgDip'
