Alternative ways to gain a certificate in teaching???Watch
I dropped out of university in May 2013 after being there since September 2012 due to finding out I was pregnant and deciding the course I had chosen wasn't going to lead to a stable career that I needed to provide for my son in the future.
I have re-applied for September 2014 to a few Early Years education courses via UCAS which are all three years long. I believe Student Finance will fund these three years but not the extra year that I will need afterwards to either gain QTS or a PGCE. So I'm wondering if there are other pathways I can take to get teacher training or if there are other sources of funding I could apply for.
Need more help on going postgrad?

Is there another factor which makes you think you won't get funding for the PGCE?
Glad to have helped - good luck!
I’m switching my course from Fine Art to History after my first year so when I go back to university in September I’ll restart as a first year again and will have used up one of my years of student finance. I have spoke to SFE and they have said they’ll fund me for 3 years on the History course. However, I’d like to teach eventually and am therefore, wondering whether this means they won’t support me financially for my PGCE. Am I right in thinking they will fund a PGCE regardless of the fact I’ve used 4 years of uni-level student finance before, or will I have to fund the PGCE myself?
