So I'm currently studying games design at Sheffield Hallam and I really want to become a games teacher at college however for this I need a PGCE degree. My teacher suggested I either apply for a teaching job and study the PGCE during (which I didn't know was possible??) Or to do a PGCE masters degree. I was wondering how many hours a week do PGCE students spend in classes (BA or MA)? Do SFE offer a maintenance loan for these students? And is there a work placement during this course? it says on our website that we have to do 120 days in a placement but it wasn't clear, plus I normally only spend that same amount in classes.
Thanks in advance

A typical university-led pgce consists of 60 days in uni and 120 days in placement.
It is very full on and intense so treat it like a full-time job. Days in uni are usually 9-4 while placements are 8-5 (not including travelling). On top of that, there is planning lessons and doing assignments etc.
And yes there you can get both tuition and maintenance loans for it.
