    Hi All!!! I'm supposed to be starting my Teacher Training Course (a School a entered Course) on Tuesday.

    There was a mandatory fitness to teach test. Apparently, you can't start the course until that's cleared.

    I have sent the form off, but have no word weather it's cleared or not. I don't want to arrive at the teaching centre on Tuesday to be turned away.

    Also, another concern is that I had to state that 3 years ago, I suffered from Mild depression which has now been cured. Will this scupper my chances of passing this fitness to teach test?

    I have had to move into the area, rent a student flat. And have moved in, bought my travel pass to get to my schools and everything (I had no choice not too, it would be to late otherwise). I just don't know what I'm going to do if I fail it, or it doesn't come through in time.

    Any advice?

    I wouldn't worry. They would have let you know if there was a problem. Otherwise assume everything is ok. Nothing you've mentioned would affect your fitness to teach at all - mild depression, even if current, is not a barrier.

    Thank you. This is a relief! I might drop my course leader an snail today to just double check everything!
