PGCE school placementsWatch
The previous cohort were allowed to gain Qualified Teacher Status without completing their placements due to lockdown but I very much doubt this will be permitted again. My school is taking student teachers although we have decided only to accept English, Mathematics and Science this year. I would imagine it will be more difficult for universities to place students but I expect they will be able to do so. It might involve some arm-twisting and calling in of favours!
Edit: Just to add, we have trainees in all sorts of subjects, including non-core. It will just depend on the school.
