SKE Course - Am I classed as a student when I start one? Watch
I've applied to begin a Secondary Maths PGCE this September, and been offered a place on the condition that I complete a 16 week SKE course starting in April.
Does anyone know if I am officially classed as a student at the moment that I start the SKE course? It's 25 hours a week of work I need to be building in a portfolio, which means I need to be quitting my current full-time job.
If I am classed as a student, I'll no longer be eligible to pay council tax, etc. Less concern for money for those 16 weeks!
Anyone any idea?
I don't think you'd have to quit your job unless you wanted to or you're doing 60hrs plus a week. 25hrs can easily be done as 5hrs each weekend day and then 2hrs each night after work. You can also take over 16 weeks to complete it, as long as you complete it before 31st August.
Obviously leave your job if you want to/can afford to, but don't feel like you have to!
Hi there, can I ask which SKE provider you are using for SEcondary online SKE provider you are using online please? I have mixed reviews for Vidlearn aand Tes. Any recommendations would be most appreciated.
Another advantage for me as a prospective science teacher is that you get access to optional access to the two other sciences GCSE level courses, which I thought would be helpful to me!
What negatives have you heard about Vidlearn and TES?
I am going to start my SKE course via vidlearn and its going to be 16 weeks long. I heard you are paid 200 per week but im wandering does that mean if I finish my course in 12 weeks does that mean I get paid on 12 weeks or secondary weeks?
Also has anyone used Vidlearn for secondary biology?? Im sitting my numeracy skills test and then I start SKE... Also is it possible to finish it in 12 weeks?
Sorry for asking so many questions!! But, everyone is so helpful!
how was overall SKE experience with eureka, I am planning to do it with eureka, you must be on your PGCE course now, are you liking it?
