PGCE Primary QTS
UCB is a brilliant university with lots of supportive staff willing to help you along the way. This is why I choose to progress onto the PGCE after achieving my degree in Childhood Studies at UCB.
The best part of the course was the school placements. These took place in a variety of different schools in different areas around the West Midlands. You were also placed at different and key stages and this really helps you to identify where you would like to specialise. Another great part of the course is the lectures because they are amazing. The support and open door policy is so much appreciated by students.
I am now a Year 1 Teacher, which I really enjoy as I like making a difference in children’s lives. I see myself developing as an experienced teacher and changing children’s lives and helping children to achieve their dreams.
The advice I would give to students considering the PGCE course, is take each day as it comes. Enjoy each day and reflect on what you have learnt. I would also recommend exploring different schools, remember that the school needs to be right school for you.
