    Hi all,

    Can anyone here tell me what kind of workload I can expect from a Primary PGCE? Someone who did the course a few years ago told me that during their placement, they would be in school from 7.30 to 5 and then spend the rest of the evening preparing lessons/materials for the next day until at night.

    Thanks

    I'm applying to the PGCE this year and from what I have gathered from other teachers and TT providers, the workload isn't difficult if you manage your time well. Don't forget that teachers now get time during school hours to plan lessons. It is called PPA time and all teachers have a entitlement to it.

    Also, teachers have told me that they hardly ever make their own resources and simply use resources online as it saves a lot of time. They said they also re-use old resources as well.

    That was the case for my friend who did it two years ago. She was leaving home at 6:30 as it took an hour to get there and was getting home for 7 and then doing notes in the evening.
