how did you get on in your PGCE year, any advice? I start mine tomorrow. I worked as a teaching assistant last year so feel suitably prepared for life in schools, though every teacher I asked said it was the hardest year of their lives, so I'm also pretty apprehensive. Being a TA was what everyone thinks being a teacher is like (I was back in time for Countdown on a good day) so working through to midnight like a proper teacher will be a shock to the system!
Tips, advice, anecdotes all warmly received - thanks.
