    Do you have any part days/training days in a school when you're at uni? If so, those count.
    I am starting one soon - where can I find assignment questions or examples of some so I can prepare?

    I am quite confident with making the first move so I think I will at some point. If he says no then oh well at least I asked. And it's a compliment for him. Who knows. Now just to break something then I can get him alone...

    Use tech in your lesson, pretend to break it and hope the right tech comes out to help you!

    No idea yet. Only had a warning phone call so I can get cover for Monday and they're going to email me all of the details.

    Do you not step out to talk to technicians? Pretend to be practicing for an observation. We are now all routing for you!

    Monday. I am beyond terrified.

    No I don't. I've never needed them in a lesson. I'm having doubts now - I mean how awkward will it be if he says no and I've got see him for the rest of my placement!

    Oh good luck! Keep us updated. I'm hoping to get an interview next week for a school I'm really interested in. Monday isn't too bad though , gives you some time to prepare for it.

    Are there any current (or prospective!) PGDE students at or going to Glasgow, Strathclyde or Edinburgh university to study a PGDE? I'm a mature student looking to apply to these universities next year and I wanted to know what it's like to study there doing a PGDE, pros and cons of each, any good/bad things you've heard about them? I'll be going to the open days but it would be nice to get an idea beforehand - thanks!

    They haven't sent the task through yet but it's a school I really really want to work at. KS4 and 5 only and it's a science and tech college so completely brilliant.

    It'll be good even if it's just for experience though.

    I'm being observed by three adults tomorrow and I've made a mistake in today's marking! It is an inconsequential mistake for the children (it's not to do with marking their work right or wrong) but I have been writing subtraction instead of addition for about 10 books! I know the tutors will check the books tomorrow and am dreading their reaction

    I'm going to have to do something like that, but crossing out or tippex in pupils' books is a HUGE no-no for my uni. I'm dreading them pointing it out!

    You're a human being. The kids are allowed to correct mistakes. So should you.

    I'm with you on that. Do you only have 5 weeks left?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yes hun - 4 after these 2 days thank GOD!!!!

    I had such a crap day today, no other words to describe it aside from a pile of poo.

    All this drama about social media and spreading pictures etc
    I couldn't control the class 4 weeks from the end you'f think I'd manage to do that much - seems not.

    Assignments vary a lot between unis. So it's hard to say what your assignments will be. Even then they can change drastically year to year so preparing much is a bad idea as you could end up making mistakes based on last years rules.

    Also relax and enjoy yourself. If you want to do something reading some papers should give you a flavour but honestly, its not necessary.

    So I asked out the ICT guy and he looked very eager and said yeah, gave me his number.

    I didn't really think things through though. I've Just got out of a long term relationship and I thought I might end up back with him after a break. Now I'm thinking I'd like to date a bit more.

    So excited for you! As Ratchit99 said, no harm in a date! Let us know how it goes!

    I am drowning in work at the moment, but feeling optimistic. Half way through a week of assessments and presentations at uni, and well on my way with planning for next week. I can do this!! (I hope.. lol)
