    Hi,
    I've just completed my 2nd year of a Maths Degree and I'm looking into doing a PGCE, the bursary's look real nice however I'm just wondering that if you receive a bursary are you required to actively seek a teaching job straight afterwards? I'm deliberating going back to do a Masters in Maths before getting a teaching job and using my PGCE bursary to fund it

    Yes, you are expected to look for an NQT position upon finishing your training year (This is specifically written in the bursary agreement). You won't be able to take the money and run.

    Dang, I'm planning on being a teacher I just don't feel ready to get a full time job just yet, I wanted to linger around in university a bit longer haha.

    Yes I know a PGCE will be extremely hard work and so would a masters but I'd still feel like a student doing them instead of an adult
