    Hey Everyone...

    This is actually the first thread i've ever posted so please forgive me if i leave anything out lol :rolleyes:

    Basically, I live in Preston and have applied through GTTR to take the Music PGCE (Secondary). My application was sent to Huddersfield on 14th March, and I haven't heard anything about an interview yet?!

    Is anyone else awaiting an invite for interview from anyone?

    Also, I currently hold an Enhanced CRB, but it has a Caution on from 6 yrs ago - for "Assault ocasioning in ABH". I DO HAVE a LOT of experience in Music. Although, Im only 23, I have been in the industry for 17 years - from classical theory and orchestral training to a music production degree and a Gold Arts Award (recognition of being an advanced practicioner and Projects Manager).

    :eek: I just need to know if anyone else is awaiting interview invites? Im panicking and checking my emails and GTTR about 10 times a day lol.

    ANY RESPONES APPRECIATED! THANKS GUYS AND GIRLIES xxx

    One thing you should know about PGCE course providers, which you might realise if you lurk around here a bit more, is they will not reply until the absolute last minute that they have to on Track, which is like a month after sending it.


    Phone your first choice and see

    i wouldnt worry about it, its early days since your application got sent it and it does take them a while to get through the hundreds of applications they get. minimum time ive heard of an application getting a responce was about 2 weeks (and for me it was a rejection!), my application got sent end of november for the place it is currently at and i didnt get a responce about an interview till january, and then my interview was origonally scheduled for mid-feb (though it got cancelled and moved to last week) so theres one example of time scale for you (though not the same for everyone!)
    try to put it from your mind and concentrate on other things (i know its difficult) and the wait will fly by
