Hi James, Wondering if you or anyone else on the forums can help. To cut a very long story short I'm in my final year at University, I gave up a very good job to follow my dream to be a teacher and had a brilliant first three years achieving good grades although I always found placement hard work I loved teaching. In my final fourth year placement I had what I can only describe as a confidence destroying time. I left placement with only a few weeks to go due not being able to sleep and having a bit of a melt down due to the way I was treated which has resulted in me having to defer my placement. The problem I have is that I am moving to the opposite side of the country and can't do my placement when Uni want me too, they are also refusing to allow me to do it now (before I leave) due to 'academic reasons and the feeling that I couldn't meet the standards required in a final placement' (It has been to student union, committee etc all to no avil.) I have had confirmation from both teachers and Head Teachers that this is not the case however it has made no difference. I am in such a mess and I now feel that I stand to loss everything I have worked so hard for. Is there anything I can do? If I just take my degree and lose my QTS is there any other way into teaching (bearing in mind I already have three years of QTS standards). Teaching has been my life for the last six years (as I had to defer when I had my baby) and I can't believe there is nothing more I can do.
