So I'm part way through my level one modules, am planing on studying at full time equiv. so three years.

I am doing a Bsc Mathematics and want to go on to teaching. Will I stand a chance of getting onto a PGCE with an open uni Bsc?

Am going to approach getting lots of experience and shadowing etc. but if I am ineligable will focus on another route!

You should be able to. I can't see why not.

Yes easily as long as you have 50% or more of your modules in the subject you want to teach. I have a BA (Hons) Open and I got onto Teach First and a PGCE which I start in September. I studied with someone who has already qualified as a primary teacher, someone who is about to finish their PGCE and four of us start in September.

Long time no see.

There is nothing wrong with an Open University degree. As a mathematics graduate, you will EASILY be able to get into teaching.

I'm just finishing my last OU level three module for my degree, and I've got an offer for a Maths PGCE in Bristol in September - where you get your getter matters less than how well you do in it :-) x

Dave Mc? Yeah he was really awesome, we did 2 days of uni and 15 in school. I'd have done my PGCE there but you couldn't do it at Carlisle campus.

Yeah him. He is great. I've never heard of the student associate scheme. Shame it's only in Lancaster campus. I am enjoying the uni, no regrets there.

It only ran till 2011, it was to give you experience of what a PGCE is like. You got a £600 bursary and filled in a reflective journal and got a report from your school mentor to help you apply for a PGCE. Shame they stopped it, I liked the school I was at so much I volunteered in the RE dept once a week for 18 months after I finished the S.A.S!

Sounds like a great idea! Shame it was stopped but not exactly surprising these days either...
