Hi, I'm a second year looking to apply for my PGCSE next year- I have experience working with kids through voluntary tutoring programs however I cant find any schools that will offer me school experience. Most of them say they only offer experience to third years/ PGCSE applicants, but I want some kid of experience before I apply.
Does anyone have any tips? or know of any schools in the West Midlands area that offer work experience to undergraduates?
My tip would be to take a break after uni and do something completely different. Your only experience of life is education yet you are setting yourself up for a job preparing kids for a world you have no experience of. Go and live a bit. You have the rest of your life to sell your sole to the teaching devil.
