Dear James and all, I am an NQT and I just completed my second term of induction. Unfortunately i did not pass this second term as I only just started in this school in september. My first term was completed at a different school and the report was quiet good. I had two observations with the first one being a satisfactory obs. The second one was unsatisfactory and then ofsted came and gave me another unsatisfactory. I struggle with behaviour management with my year 10 class. The induction tutor has told me that an action plan will be made for next term but I can't help but feel totally rubbish as a teacher. Also, she adviced me to contact my union but my union rep is my head of department and that puts me in a difficult possition as I feel i will be putting him in a difficult position as well. What should I do? Also the school gave me an option to either resign or stay on. I decided to stay on. Is that some message they were sending across to me or what? I feel it is unfair to say I am failing for the observations which did not go well as my mentor has not observedd me at all. I will appreciate your comments on this. Thanks Worried.
