school direct hours
Although some School Direct fee-paying courses can lead to a PGCE, in general providers distinguish the two as “School Direct” and “university based PGCE routes”. I was pretty darn lucky, but I’ve heard some horror stories about some class teachers (not in any school I taught in, I hasten to add) who do not support students, and, in some cases, actively undermine them. I’ve always thought I would have enjoyed primary more as even though it’s as much hard work it would be less behaviour management I’m hoping. I just dont know if I will be able to cope with the work load especially as my youngest child will only be 3 years old. My hunch is that PGCE may be more ‘do-able’ for those with families for the reasons you outline, but I don’t have any direct experience of it. It varies hugely between schools: some have fixed whole days with joint planning, in others you take it in chunks when you can. Hi Marie, apologies for the late reply. Yeah, I’ve been offered a role in my current school. I was totally UNprepared for what hit me, but as you’ve been working as a TA (I hadn’t, came straight from BBC) you will already be in a much better place than I was. I would sigh as PGCE students left at 4.30 pm (though I’m not saying the PGCE is an easier route – I had far, far less academic work). I’ve been up.past midnight regularly, sometimes as late as 3am trying to produce LPs on my own (my mentor is great but has even less time than I do). Hi.

For me, with 3 school age children, working exactly the kind of hours you describe was too much and I am now doing general supply teaching – something there is a huge demand for, and which I couldn’t do without my QTS. You’ve done great work. There may not be enough jobs for all School Direct trainees in your school, but if they like you I think you’d be encouraged to apply for one. Your mental health absolutely comes first, but I would say two other things: you may possibly not fail your first term, and if you stick with it you may be able to secure a role in a school where you can teach Biology exclusively and feel much more comfortable. Not sure why I feel in such turmoil over doing it! I am mildly panicking now. Culture shock. A bursary of up to £25,000, depending on age, phase or subject and qualification 5.

This post has resonated with me like no other I’ve read online…I’m coming to the end of my primary SDS year, and although I agree with all the positive aspects mentioned above, it saddens me to say that they are far, far outweighed by the negative. I am 24 coming 25 so still have time on my side. I best stop procrastinating! The NQT year is notoriously tough (some other teachers telling me to expect “a year of tears as an NQT”) but in hindsight I don’t think I was sufficiently prepared for my NQT year with only a year of School Direct classroom experience under my belt. You’ll receive a combination of classroom teaching and 20% of your time is allocated to off-the-job training as you work towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This provided me with an even greater focus and incentive: I really was now going to turn from being a radio studio manager into a primary school teacher.

Hello I’m scared and reassured to hear your story.I think you did amazingly well to see it through.I’m a career changer of sorts in that I’m an ex EFL Teacher recently returned from Spain with just over 5 years teaching english experience. But some people on my course loved SD. I went to my spare room and sat there and just cried for ages. The schools are now in charge, so make sure you pick a good one. Your words honestly have brought me to tears as I completely understand what you went through I am living it right now! I have just completed my Hons degree in education attaining a 2:1 (primary) . I also did half a primary PGCE some time ago before dropping out so I see that side of the coin too. Working for the BBC for 22 years, I’d never worked as a TA, and I only had 2 weeks’ experience in a primary school. Here are a couple of observations I’ve made that have resonated with other teachers: ‘My best AND worst lessons are planned on the hoof, or at very short notice.’. I dreaded going into school every day- it felt like I had Ofsted sitting at the back of every lesson, every day of the week. It’s not a great feeling to be sitting in a lecture or tutorial thinking you are wasting your time when you have 90 books to mark and lessons to plan, though the opportunity to talk to fellow students in other schools is invaluable. Are you in primary or secondary? If one gets through the year, is it really the case that employment prospects aren’t always that great? Apologies for the very late reply – I get a lot of spam comments and the real ones get buried! I think I might do PGCE so I have a little more control over my study. It has been extremely helpful in helping me decide between a PGCE and School Direct, and I can safely say it’s going to be a PGCE for me :) I worked full time for 4 years and wanted to be a teacher to make a difference. Hi, I constantly swing between thinking the expectations are way to high given my limited experience and questioning my own competence. Qualified (and even newly-qualified) teachers will breezily say ‘oh find a nice activity or game’ and the student then spends a whole evening scouring the TES web site for things, none of which quite fit the learning intention you had in mind. To me the latter is a more attractive path. It’s a tough situation you’re in, and I certainly sympathise having been there myself. I sometimes want to grab the teachers and scream that no I don’t have any experience, certainly not at lesson planning (not much from the uni element either) and you knew this when you took me on!

Given term is nearly over, have you been offered an NQT year in your current school? I’m applying for the this salaried route into teaching later this year (2015). Good luck with early years – you may find your niche there. I probably looked like a fool with a huge grin on my face, but it was sincere. It’s funny, so many people have asked why I don’t go for primary teaching because I think they think that’s the ‘easier’ option (hanging out with cute, adoring kids all day). When I ask children to work independently they struggle and before long the classroom is noisey and most are off task. I’m also struggling with children’s behaviour. I got more pleasure out of watching children, some whom I’d taught, some I barely knew, on stage and doing their best than I got out of any number bands on Later With Jools Holland. I may be naive, but I can’t understand adults who sit stony-faced at such occasions. SEN teaching might be a good path, but you’d still need to do a School Direct year, and I presume an NQT year as a regular class teacher. I am currently doing my early years teaching status with top-up masters in child learning and development through an employment route working in a private nursery since 3 years and managed to get done with 4 weeks of school placements in two outstanding school which I absolutely enjoyed. If I didn’t have a young family I’d be there like a shot, but sadly it’s a career that doesn’t seem compatible with family life these days!

Hi, I'm starting my nonsalaried, Primary School Direct (PGCE) course in about 2 weeks (Scary!) The creative aspect asides I am worried about the theory side of things as I learn a lot better with practical lessons which I suppose is the point but I was wondering how hard you found that side of it?Did you do any pre course reading to get ready before your started?I’m also worried about being tied into a school after the course but a friend of mine said maybe the school will only be obliged to take you on for the NQT year and that it works both ways i.e the student Teacher or school might not be a good fit and either party may want to part ways. Planning takes me so long, but is well received by the other year 5 teacher who also follows my lesson plans.

But it’s different when you’ve got to be up at the crack of dawn to spend a day in the classroom… and repeat after school… and repeat ad infinitum. From my perspective I suppose a lot depends on the thickness of the rose tinted glasses I currently wear and my personal expectation management. I had to account for every hour of training given in school and college, though I couldn’t work out why this was my resposibility, in an unworkable Word document. Others on my course have been into different year groups each term because the school wants to give them as much experience as possible – I’ve been in the same year group from the start with a 4 week placement after Easter scheduled – I’ve been told I’m wholly responsible for the progress of that class this year!
