No work experience before applying to Primary Education degreeWatch
I have (had) a job working as a Children's Party Instructor, but apart from that I am worried that I don't have anything else to put on my statement. My school have made the deadline for personal statements November instead of the actual deadline which is in January.
Also, if you are looking for a qualification that will lead to you being a teacher, do make sure that the degree includes QTS. Otherwise, you will have to do an additional postgraduate qualification to become a qualified teacher.
Due to the current situation you are not alone in not being able to gain some experience in schools, there are however other ways to gain some experience at this time. Online tutoring is an option, viewing online lessons, exploring the content of the curriculum area you want to teach will all strengthen an application these are a few examples. I also agree that ringing providers is also a good idea to gain an insight into their individual expectations.
