    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help?

    I'm on a pgce course at the minute and being paid a decent amount to train. I'm currently about half way through the course and the loner it goes on the more I'm beginning to think teaching is not for me.

    I left a well paid job to come and do this (I was actually better off before that now) and gave it very careful consideration before applying and accepting so please don't think I just did it for the bursary.

    I'm just wondering what the implications are (if any) of conpletingthe course and then not going into teaching?

    I want to finish the course as I gave up a lot to do if and this may just be a post Christmas wobble, but if not I wanted to know what happens about the bursary if I complete and then don't teach.

    I'm not struggling or anything with the course and teaching itself I just have a returning feeling that I might not want this.

    I know if I drop out the payments will cease which is fine but as I said I'd like to complete it if possible however, if there are implications in the long run I would like to be aware so I know what my options are now.

    Thanks for reading and for any help!
