Hi, I've just received an offer for TF and was initially very excited! I've recently been reading up on other people's experiences and found a lot of negatives!!
Is it really that bad compared to a PGCE/SD route? I am now panicking that I'm about to make a huge mistake!!

TF tends to put people into the deep end, where you're responsible for an entire class straight away, with minimal training. PGCEs and School Directs tend to ease you into teaching, where you would work with an experienced mentor and your teaching timetable will build up from teaching small groups to eventually teaching an entire class. Many people who do a TF tend to leave in a couple of years to do a "better job" while more PGCE/SD students tend to stay in teaching (not to say that none of them end up leaving teaching). If you feel comfortable teaching an entire class straight away then TF is for you, if you do a PGCE/SD then you will be eased into teaching a little more. As far as I'm concerned you can still apply for PGCE/SDs as long as you haven't accepted your place with TF hope this helps
