Hi, I've just started at Keele doing English. After my degree I want to do my PGCE in English, was just wondering if you have any advice for me, such as personal statements and/ or experience. Thanks!(Original post by princessnavi22)
It should be fine.. I went to Keele and I did Law with History and I'm going to me a primary teacher, I got onto my PGCE course so I wouldn't worry about it

If you want to go straight into the PGCE, then your course must be at least 50% in the subject you wish to teach. If you fall below this, it will be at the discretion of the provider, although you would most likely have to complete a (6-12 month enhancement course) before going on to your PGCE.

I did a Law degree and am now going into teaching Maths, but don't assume we haven't had to do an intensive 6 months - 1 year of maths SKE. Much more intensive than my degree I found. Out of 30 of us going into maths teaching at my university, only 6 have maths-related degrees. There simply aren't enough maths graduates willing to go into teaching to cover all the teaching jobs.
