DEAR TED 'I've just completed my degree and have lots of job rejections, should I do PGCE?"

Posted on 4th July, 2019

There is no simple answer to this.  After years of school and then college exams some people need a break and go and find themselves on a world tour, others get straight down to applying for every job going and some look at further education in the form of diplomas, MAs or PhDs.


Only you can make the call.  PGCE is one of a lot of options for further education after a degree.  Its designed to lead to teaching.  Are you sure that's something you could be passionate about?  Maybe ask around friends and see if you can sit in with a teacher at a school and see it from their perspective? 


Whilst going through the application process, think about trying out some other jobs, anything you do will give you valuable experience of some kind - and give valuable additional weight to your cv, so that it differentiates you from others.  Volunteering is a great way to add and give something back, for example.
