    I think im gonna have a look into derby and then make a decision...bahhh i feel so rushed haha
    Good plan!
    If you don't find a course that fits you this time just build your experience and wait for next year, certainly don't panic and rush into the wrong course. Apply 2 stays open right til the start of the course though so there is some time to research the available options. :-)

    Definitely ring the uni and ask for feedback at the end of the day they can only say no! Also about location just remember you're on placement a lot of the time, does this make any difference? Good luck with whatever you decide

    I would be totally honest with your referee, and tell them that it is vital you get your application in today. If they still don't have it done by the end of the day, ask someone else to do it, but make sure that they can complete it within two days maximum. You don't have to have someone who knows you well for your academic reference. Mine was my course leader who doesn't even know who I am. They just have to provide evidence that you can cope with the academic demands of the course (which they can tell from your records). I did that and got interviews to all three. At this stage, I would prioritise getting your application submitted over the quality of your references. As you will know, courses are closing right now and the next one could be your choice! I waited two weeks for my reference and was a nervous wreck, so I know how you feel. Good luck.

    Very true... If they don't respond, try n find someone else to do for u...My one of the references doesn't know me very well but just from the records they write a reference for you.. Don't worry n don't wait much try to sort it out this week. Hopefully u cam submit*next week n...good luck.. U never know u might get an interview sooner than expected.....

    Yes for primary, how is it?
    It's fine. There were a lot of us but we were split into small groups for the main interview. Staff are really friendly and make you feel at ease. Just be prepared and ready to show everything that would make you a good teacher!

    Anyone applied for Primary at Anglia Ruskin or Bishop Grot?
    Sent my application about a week ago (was waiting for nightmare references!)

    Any idea how long it will take to hear anything?

    I did yes. Choosing between there and Derby now. Leaning towards Derby as that was my first choice, but the interview at Trent was quite enjoyable and the staff were lovely.

    Aww welldone! Congrats! On the letter for Trent it says something about a group presentation? ..Do they just give u the issue on the spot?..do u remember what kind of issues were given?

    Not sure how much I am allowed to say but it was a task about some aspect of teaching that you then had to present. You're given chance to work on it with your group and it's all very chilled out.

    Would a suitable education issue be the what the next conservative manifesto will say? 9-6 school days and 7 weeks holiday for the whole year?

    So I'm unbelievably frustrated right now. Applied for a PGCE in Secondary English, which I understand is an already highly competitive course for places as it is. I'm still waiting on references after submitting my application over 3 weeks ago. I got a very good reference from the teacher whose school I run an after school club in, however I am still awaiting my Uni tutors!

    I have been pestering her all week. I went to her on Monday; "I'll do this today." Went to her yesterday "Yes, I'm just doing it now." It's reaching midday now, and nothing. I have explained to her that I've been told most courses fill up at the end of January at the latest. I'm being polite as possible, but it's getting me nowhere. I am basically helpless since she is the only tutor that really knows me personally and since I'm still at University I have to give an academic reference. I applied late in the year as it is, and now I've pretty much resigned myself to not getting a place. I may not have even if my reference had got in on time, but it certainly doesn't help.
    Why not tell her "The deadline for the application is X of February. I am only waiting for your reference."

    I would say length of school day or timings of school holidays are both suitable issues that are being discussed a lot lately. Just make sure to look at different opinions on them.

    Well done! What age phase are you going to do? I've chosen 3-7. When is your skills test?

    Thanks! I've been going through papers and forums looking at what students/teachers/parents think about it and the negative and positive impact that it could have on education
