    There is a section in the GTP application form for qualifications/knowledge relating to the Primary National Curriculum. I don't have a degree in a Nat. Curr. subject. Any ideas how I can cover as many of the Nat. Curr. areas as possible?

    Tbh I would value what I have learned since my degree more than my degree (Psychology), but I don't have specfic qualifications for subjects such as Geography, History, RE, Art & Design etc :cool:

    You are advised to " indicate your depth of knowledge and experience in all of the subjects".

    Any advice appreciated - thanks.

    You can talk about how your Psychology degree has helped you learn English, (essays), Maths (I'm assuming it is a BPS accredited course you did statistics), Basic Science (Biology - parts of the brain).

    Have you done any work experience in Primary schools? If so, here is the part to talk in depth about what you know from the primary cirriculum from that.

    Have you done A Levels? If so, you can discuss these. Or even go as far back as to GCSE (providing you got good grades that is!)

    thanks Snugfin

    I have lots of experience so have mentioned that. My gcses were long ago and not really that useful now though!

    Not sure how to go about talking about Geography History etc as i studied them so long ago. In reality I know much more about them now but how do I explain that?

    How about RE, Art etc??

    I have an Engineering degree and applied for Secondary Maths. The links are more obvious but I made a statement that I had reviewed the curriculum and felt that I had experience and knowledge in all areas.
