Dear James...Is this normal/acceptable?

  1. Is that really what he said???? Awful.
    Mind you, I wouldn't mind my mentor gathering some evidence to prove I haven't met the standards - he's just made up his mind and told me I'm gonig to fail the assessment....I'm sure the fattest, most complete folder of evidence showing I've met each standard couldn't sway him now

    The problem is, if you feel you have met a standard and your mentor/HT are sure you haven't, they need to be able to show you that you haven't. Therefore they need evidence. Yes it sounds awful and I am very glad not to be in that position (mentoring an NQT who meets and exceeds standards daily!), but it might not be quite as they are saying.

    Besides it is ok not to have met ALL the standards yet.
