When I went for my interview to study PGCE lifelong learning I was told I could apply for a student loan to cover the tuition fees.

But I've just spoken with student loans company and they said this isn't correct but she didn't seem sure on the phone.

Does anyone have any experience of this?

many thanks

If you are doing a Primary or Secondary PGCE you get a tuition fee loan.
Tbh I didn't even know you could do a PGCE in only sixth form and further education, but I can't understand why it would be any different to the other PGCEs. Unless you have already done a form of ITT.

Training to teach in the post compulsory sector is such a minefield because there is yet to be a standard qualification available in that there are pgce, pgde, dtlls qualifications. They are all priced and taught differently and there is so much conflicting information about funding.

I was initially going to train to teach in the post compulsory sector but due to the above factors it leaves too much to be desired at the moment. As a result of this I am hoping to do a secondary pgce because I feel that this will give me more options anyway.

I don't know if this is helpful and I can't answer your question exactly but I can totally empathise with the content of your op in terms of the inconsistent information out there in terms of finding a post compulsory teaching qualification.

I am also looking at post compulsory education, I did the student finance calculator online which said they would give me finance for all of my 3 choices.
