    Hello all.

    I have a BSc Maths from Imperial College, London, followed by 4 years unrelated work experience. I now want to retrain as a secondary / A-level Maths teacher, and am keen to get going this September if possible. My first two choices would have been King's College or Reading University, but it looks like I missed out on clearing there.

    I have been in talks with London Southbank who do have places, but there are at the bottom of the PGCE table which makes me a little wary. I am currently in full-time employment, and don't want to risk not getting a job at the end of the course by rushing things.

    Could anyone please advise me as to whether I should wait and go to my first choice in Sept 2010, or go for it at Southbank this year. Anyone who may have experience actually studying there, if you could offer any advise on the course and prospects after, I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your response and sorry it has taken so long for me to reply. I do now have an interview at Reading, one of my first choices, and am very hopeful! Thanks for the offer, I think Suffolk would have been a bit far as I am in Surrey, but I do appreciate the advice!

    Thanks again
