who to choose for a school reference? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi there, my first post here so please be kind!

    I'm looking to apply for this years PGCE entry (2016) and i have already done the days experience needed in an educational establishment in a junior school and a pre school and will still be there till i leave to start the course.

    Im looking to do a primary PGCE not early years, but i know that my time spent in the pre school will help my application. does it matter who gives me my reference?

    I feel the owner and staff at the pre school know me better and would be able to write me a glowing reference.

    whereas i haven't had many conversations aside from the initial discussion and the odd catch up in passing with the junior school headteacher, so even though she is lovely, i don't know whether she would be the best person to ask to help my application.

    Basically, i don't want my application to be hindered if my reference is coming from a pre school owner rather than the headteacher of the junior school considering i am applying for primary?
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
