Okay, I am super early to this but thought I would get the ball rolling and have something set up before the course opens again for applicants.

I’m sure your organisation will make you a great teacher! I’ll be applying for PGDE Religious Education, hoping for Strathclyde

There is a group specifically for Primary on Facebook. Here is the link, I wish I had known about the Facebook group last year

I'm early too I'm applying to Edinburgh for the PGDE Primary. I have kids already in school so it's Edinburgh or bust for me, which is slightly nerve wracking!

Has anyone started their personal statement yet?

I applied last year hun so I will just be revamping mine.

Edinburgh is super hard to get into so make sure you have a really good statement. Could you not go Dundee if you had to?

I had heard that. I've got a really good mentor at the school I'm volunteering at who has been teaching for 5 years so is relatively recent to the application process herself, so I'm lucky that way because she's happy for me to give me advice and give me opportunities in her class that will work well in my personal statement.

I've looked into Dundee but the commute is too much - up to 2 hours each way, same reason I'm not applying to Glasgow. It just wouldn't work around childcare being from 7.30-6. I wish I was able to apply to more than just Edinburgh, but it's already going to be a tough enough couple of years while we get used to me being at uni/placement without having 4 hours on the train every day, when I could have an hour and a half and get that extra time with my kids around the coursework and prep time.

I'm applying for PGDE (primary) for 2020 entry

I've managed to build experience through volunteering in local primary schools and working with youth groups. I have to tweak my personal statement and I should be ready to apply :clap2:

thank god I'm not the only one that's already working on their application! I applied for this year intake but I never got in so I'm just re-using and updating my personal statement and the basic information on my application is basically the same but I've added in my modules now, has anybody else done that for their education section? Does it make a difference? I'm waiting on my maths results next week as I studied part-time last year for my n5... nervous!
