Please tell me what you think about this. I am thinking about applying to do an educational psychology course - I have the relevant qualifications (a first class honours degree in psychology, Qualified Teacher Status and am currently teaching children with specific special needs) So I stand a good chance of getting on the course. I would love to do it, however, if I get on the course it will mean travelling in the first year of 1 hour each way to get to closest university whereas at the moment I work part time. My mum has said she will give up her job to look after children and Aidan will almost qualify for free child care places anyway. Am I mad to take on such a big workload??? What do you think?
