    Hey, I'm thinking of applying to Sheffield Hallam for my PGCE, it says on their website (briefly) that you need some experience in observation, does anyone know if this is just in secondary schools or experience in primary would be useful too?

    Thanks!
    (I'm in 2nd year at the moment so im not in any hurry, just starting to look into it all)

    Also, does anyone know if the Schools Direct course is better? Like which would be a better methods, studying the teaching at Hallam or going to Huddersfield and doing Schools Direct but with no emphasis on geography...

    Has anyone got any advice?

    Hello,

    I'm currently at Hull doing secondary Geog, so if you have any questions ask away.
    Courses ask you to get 10 days experience in a secondary school and 5 days in a primary school (The primary school experience can be done just before your course).
    With regards to the course, it depends what you want out of it. Schools direct does not guarantee a PGCE, it depends on the specific course.
