    I suspected as much. Who told you that?
    It's just general knowledge at my uni. Anyone without a job is now being hunted down by their course tutor with jobs being thrown at us left, right and centre.

    Yeah, that is a very appropriate verb.

    Yeah true, I'm starting an RE PGCE in Sept and had my interview with SD people. They told us at interview that 100% of the last SD cohort found jobs by Easter but only 92% of the RE PGCE...they were very quick to point out that this was because one guy had decided to become a vicar and therefore messed up their stats!!!!

    She was probably just tired, and you are nervous. I know this is a little late since you're likely already there, but don't worry about that yet. You can look at options and figure out how to make it work if you get it (walking or biking to station, bus, learning to drive, car share?).

    Remember,although it's true that good employment figures reflect well on PGCEs (naturally a worry since the government wants any excuse to get rid of places) some tutors actually do care about the students they are training. I have several tutors who were/are lovely and really do want us to be happy. Of course they want us to stay in teaching too because they are passionate about teaching and want good teachers to keep in the job, especially since it's a bit rats leaving a sinking ship at the minute.

    Having been there today, it was a whole load of fuss about nothing. Easily walkable (without crutches) and my local trains kick in early enough to get me to the main station early enough to be there an hour before I'm needed in school.

    All manageable. Interview went well and in the end it came down to me and another woman currently doing supply there. They'll call us tomorrow to let us know :/

    I really enjoyed the day so would be incredibly happy to get it. Waiting is definitely the hardest.

    Definitely is. When I got my current job, I couldn't handle waiting by the phone. I actually went to bed at 7pm to make myself stop thinking about it and was woken up half an hour later by a phone call from the head.

    Good luck! Hope you get it. Waiting is awful... I was waiting from 11.30am-nearly 8pm for the phone call a couple of weeks ago. Didn't get it and it was a very abrupt phonecall too. Felt worse after they'd rung because I'd wasted the entire day!

    I've been technically single this entire PGCE as in, it was never 'official',and tonight he ended things completely... Doesn't help with my overly emotional state at the moment - just 7 more teaching days to go and then I can have a rest.

    I'm sorry to hear this and I'm sure this won't help at the moment, but if you have been with him all this time and he didn't want to make it official then you are better off without him. You deserve to be with someone who wants to shout it from the rooftops
