I have a friend who is doing a PGCE but does not want to go into teaching after this. I'm not sure why they would finish the qualification off if they won't go in to teaching. They also won't say why they don't want to go into teaching which is a shame as if they said myself and our friends could probably understand if they had made the right decision. What careers could they go into after a PGCE showing transferable skills?

Finishing off the qualification is a sensible move, as by this point they've already paid for most of the tuition, so it makes sense just to finish it off in case they want to return to teaching in the future.

It seems a bit odd that you're asking all this for your friend? If they wanted to tell you the reasons behind their career decision, they would, but if they'd rather not share then maybe they're trying to express that they don't want your help in this?

My friends and I would certainly not intervene but want to prepare just in case they need support, as our friend is susceptible to anxiety and depression as they have been through this a lot. I understand it's personal and they don't want to discuss it. Thanks for pointing out they could return to teaching in future, that makes sense after paying so much money and it's near the end now.

That's very thoughtful of you. However, the best support you can offer is to be there an to listen. Offering people your own perceived solutions to their difficult problems is often the last thing they need. They will find their path and will do it much easier if they have the support and help of some good friends.

Thank you, this makes sense as they want support not to be dictated too. Also, if they make their own decision you cannot be held accountable when you were not involved in their decision.
