I handed in my notice at work last week. And no, I haven’t got another job …
But don’t worry – I’m going back to uni, again. (I just can’t seem to stay away from the place!)
Several months ago I was really pleased to find out I had a place on a PGCE course doing teacher training for the Lifelong Learning Sector (yay!), but that was soon dampened when I found out that I wouldn’t have funding (boo!). Obviously, I was very disappointed as there’s no way I can afford £3,000+ on tuition fees, never mind not having a job being able to guy, y’know, food and other necessary things. So I thought I wouldn’t be able to do the course … until I found out a couple of weeks ago that I would have funding! (Huzzah!)
So, I start next month and I really can’t wait – finally I’ll be able to work towards a career where I can use my degree (teaching English at colleges, prisons and other adult learning situations) and do something other than administration, which will also stand me in good stead for when I one day (hopefully) do a PhD and can teach at universities.
I am so pleased and relieved and all other kinds of good things!
