Having almost completed my sabbatical year I decided that I should take finding a job more seriously. I have applied to Christ Church Canterbury University to do their on-line iTeach Maths course which would lead to a PGCE in 18 months. There is also a £16,000 bursary to encourage people to become teachers of maths, physics or chemistry. I have seen their on-line teaching and resource package and have to say that it is much more impressive than I expected. I also visited The Marlowe Academy in Ramsgate which I was also very impressed with; I'm back there next Wednesday to spend a day experiencing the maths classes, the youngsters and the place at large.
