You can find a million books on becoming a teacher. But there’s only one crowd sourced book that gives you real advice from real teachers – The PGCE Survival Guide. And it’s a must read for any aspiring teachers, or those thinking of going into teaching.
Tim Handley, a newly qualified Primary teacher and BrainPOP UK fan, has created this book entirely from his and others’ experiences. We’re also honoured that he picked BrainPOP UK as one of his recommended “Useful on-Line resources” for PGCE (Postgraduate certificate in education) students. We want to show our support in return.
We’ll leave it to Tim to describe his work.
“The PGCE Survival guide- the Essential guide to your teacher training.
Fed up of reading boring theory book after theory book?
Want to know what being a trainee teacher is really like?
Wouldn’t it be great if you could just get real tips, from real teachers?
Well, let me introduce the PGCE Survival Guide! It’s full of useful and practical hints, tips and advice from recent PGCE graduates and more experienced teachers covering every element of teacher training, from your first day at university, through the hectic world of placements to finding a job- we have it all covered!
You won’t find countless chapters about educational theory- just real tips and advice from real teachers. The PGCE survival guide also includes #pgcetipos – over 300 super useful hints and tips from the education community on twitter.”
You can download the book for free and/or order a printed copy for £6.91 from the PGCE Survival Guide incorporating #pgcetips page on Lulu.
Congratulations to Tim and the whole BrainPOP team wishes him every success with it.
