PGCE Primary QTS
I chose to study my PGCE at UCB because my overall impression was so good from the moment I made the initial enquiry on the phone right through interview. Staff were extremely helpful and so accommodating. At interview stage, a group of applicants are invited so that you get to meet others who could be on the course with you. Many of us commented on how friendly the atmosphere was and how welcoming the lecturers were. This played a major part in my decision to go to UCB.
The course is very well organised and the range of placements are invaluable both for your CV and for developing your confidence.
My advice to others considering studying this course would be don’t give up! At times it can be challenging but it is definitely worth it and it does get easier.
On completion of my course I secured a full-time teaching post teaching year 1 pupils at a local primary school. The job is extremely challenging but seeing children make progress, no matter how big or small, makes it so rewarding.
