About to embark on a PGCE - will I have time for my band?

You should have enough time, but you're gonna have to manage your time effectively - especially if you're gonna be busy with your band during the week. Sometimes there's last minute changes or meetings during the week or after school, so that might get in the way. In my experience, you're expected to basically always make time for after school meetings or to adapt your lessons with little notice.
Also, there are lots of parents on the course. I don't think there's anything more time consuming than having a child (and rightly so). So having an once-a-week engagement shouldn't pose too much of a problem imho
