28, assuming I get a job at the end of my PGCE!

I do think being a bit older is better for secondary, though.

22 (turning 23 that school year), theoretically - if I get a place on a Primary PGCE this year, start in Sept. 2019 and proceed to an NQT job in Sept. 2020.

I think it's somewhat common for people to take at least a year out to be a TA after their degree, but I don't particularly want to delay so hopefully my school experience has made me a competitive candidate. If not, then I'd be 23 turning 24 when eventually doing the NQT year.

TA? What is the mythical creature of legend?

I've never had one, I teach in a poor school in a bad area and there's just no funding or existence of TAs apparently. :P So I don't actually know

Full time at least 37 I guess (I have no idea tbh). I am just starting uni at 29. I plan to do a masters and PhD after so I don't know how long it will really take or how/when I will start teaching :/

It's either going to be early or late. I want to spend a few years in industry get a masters and also teach. However, the order of which it is going to occur only God knows.

I’ve been working in schools for 20 years. Working with children is all I have ever wanted to do, it’s just taken this long to gain all the entry requirements in order to finally do it. I only passed GCSE maths this year. I’m so excited, it’s been a long time coming!
