Hi, this is regarding my husband! Early this year he quite his GTP, he was having a terrible time, no support, bullying etc etc so he stepped away to protect his mental health. He still desperately wants to teach, he is thinking of applying for PGCE this year, but is concerned his previous provider will give a negative reference (she told him in so many words she would!). Does anybody have any experience of previous GTP students going on to do PGCE or is this unrealistic and should he give up now? Thanks in advance

I know someone who started Teach First, quit and then started a PGCE. Don't know about the reference - maybe something to contact the PGCE provider about?

Unsupportive school, didn't give them a chance. Not sure what was done about a reference for the PGCE tho - maybe the same referees as for TF
