3 choices when applying for PGCE/Schools Direct etc - Help? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi All, not had much support from Uni (who promised theywould!) re applying for PGCE/Schools Direct etc. I see from my own research theapply process opens on 27th October.Wonder if anyone can help me? Just a few quick q’s…Noticed the Gov have cut funding for primary places – so thishas somewhat screwed my plans for PGCE only, but I will apply to it stillregardless & hope I can somehow save some ££ as this is most definitely mypreferred choice.BUT I would like to know when applying online, If I use 1 of my3 choices to apply for PGCE – does that mean my other 2 choices are restrictedto just one particular school each, i.e. I apply to ‘Primary School A forSchools Direct Salaried’ & ‘Primary School B’ for Schools Direct Salaried. This seems very limited, when you consider how manyapplicants there are vs how many places on offer.26

    If you're applying to be a teacher you may want to practice using spell-check.

    You can apply for a student loan for a PGCE and sometimes Universities will offer hardship funds if you have bills/rent/mortgage to pay. You apply for any 3 courses that strike your appeal. Yes it's limited, because it's a competitive career to get into - one Primary school can't take on 50 new teachers, it's not practical.
    I'm not really sure what the question is here?

    I'm applying for 3 courses (All of my choices are SCITT), each course has 2 places. That's a 1 in 6 chance of being accepted onto a PGCE.

    A bit harsh the first comment.... I am sure OP would spell check important documents, a forum is a bit different.

    Anyway yes it does mean that, but if all places decline you then in apply 2 you can apply for somewhere else if you have been unsuccessful. Although this is one place at a time, so you have to wait until they have answered to apply again to the next place. Hope that helps
