PGCE secondary art

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
is or has anyone done this? or any PGCE really? i've started looking into where i want to go. one mistake i made with my current university was not looking into where i wanted to go more. it was close to home and thats why i picked it. this time i want to put my needs and my career before that. ive been lookin into doing it at liverpool, i'm not even sure why, it just seems to appeal to me more than the others i've looked at.

ideally i'd have loved to stay in lincoln because i absolutely love the city, but unfortunetely they don't do a PGCE in art. i've also found quite a few places are saying in their entry requirements i would need a first. this aint gonna happen lol, a 2:1 possibly, not a first. do you think this could be a major problem?

i also like liverpool because from what ive seen they are alot more interested in the work itself rather than the grade. has anyone studied at liverpool?

dont really know what i'm asking for, just general advice really i think :)

    i might be goin on work experience at christ hospital school, well thats where i'm gonna write to if my friend cant get me some at branston.

    i love the course i'm on, hated it in first year but in second yr it changed completelty.

    if you live near me then its very likely i could have served you at co-op :nervous:

    I did a Primary PGCE and it is hard work. You have no social life, hundreds of work - cramming 4 years into 1. You go straight into placement, within a few weeks and you practically learn on the job.

    I don't know much about art PGCE, but a friend did a music one and he had so much work to do. One good thing is that it is all assessment based - there are no exams. This pleased me as I don't like exams! :yippe:

    the work doesnt really bother me, not to fussed about the social side of things. i have been looking at doing it part-time though rather than full-time so that i could fit in a part-time job too, but i think i'd enjoy it more if i did it full-time. i like keeping busy and because PGCE courses still allow to have a loan and a grant, a job isnt a necessity, it would just help a great deal.

    gonna go along to an open day in october so i can bombard them with my twenty questions lol
