My ITT provider has just failed it's Ofsted inspection, rated 4. What implications does this have for us trainees?
I would like to become a primary teacher. I have a degree in French and business studies and have lived years in Switzerland.
I heard that there are lots of unemployed primary teachers. Is that true?
Would I have a better chance of being employed if I studied Primary Teaching (7 to 12), Early Years and Primary (3 to 12) or Primary with French?
Which route would offer me more openings?
I have a PR visa for Canada. There is an oversupply of teachers there but I was thinking of becoming a montessori teacher in Canada either and opening my own school.
I am currently studying my PGCE and of course am job hunting along side it.
Recently I applied, and was interviewed, for an international job and I will be informed of their decision next week.
The school in question follows the A-level system set up here in the UK and also has a GCSE equivalent system which is almost identical in syllabus.
I start my PGCE in September, should I join a union? Which one is best? How do I go about it?
Thanks in advance,
