So basically I am wanting to gain a career as an Environmental Education officer, I have a BSc Zoology (hons) gaining a 2:1. Looking at adverts for jobs and the job profiles etc I need a teacher qualification and so looking at PGCE. However, Open Uni don't offer this anymore and I am most likely going to have to move during the years training due to my partners job. So has anyone transferred mid course? or anyone know of good distance learning PGCE courses?

Plus any advice on making it as a Education officer would be amazing!

Many Thanks

Lou

Education officer is a very loose term and people come into it from loads of different backgrounds. I don't know about distance learning for PGCE as you have to get experience as part of your degree. Transferring may be possible but you will have to check with unis first. It may just be a question of finishing your degree in one place and then moving. Moved to the relevant forum.

PGCE in most places is effectively teacher training in a school in front of real kids. And on top of your planning, marking and teaching you are also expected to write masters level essays for your PGCE qualification.
