    I, like many others, have had my university place confirmed. Whether that is via a 3 year program or a one year PGCE we are going to qualify to become NQT's and hopefully secure jobs at the end.

    How would you say is the best way to stand out from the rather large primary teaching crowd? How is the best way to become well rounded, educated teaching professionals? What skills and capabilities are primary schools looking for?

    Thoughts?

    I'm in the same situation as you but doing secondary computing so face a bit less competition. My strategy is going to be to read everything (especially now whilst I have time), talk to everyone and anyone, attend local and regional teacher meet ups, publish resources (in my world, that is on Computing for Schools), follow influential teachers on twitter and perhaps contribute and so on. Basically, immerse myself.

    Good luck!

    They are looking for men. That will make you stand out from the crowd.
