I am wanting to apply for a secondary PGCE qualification for the 2018 entry. However, whilst in my 3rd year i did a couple of months of observing in a high school in October 2016 till about December 2016. But am I going to need more recent classroom experience in order to apply for a 2018 entry? or will this be okay to use?
Also regarding references, will I need to use the teacher who I observed? She is difficult to get hold of as shes always really busy and I feel like I will be waiting a long time before i get a reference from her can I just use 2 of my previous lecturers?
Thank you in advance! :-)
Is the exam system out of date?
