Dear Sage, am hoping you or others can help. I am on my second placement and have met all course expectations, can evidence all the standards and observations have never graded below a 'good'. I have 6 weeks to the end of the course. Unfortunately, the current placement has proved difficult. The school does not have in place any provisions (no mentor, meetings, schemes of work...). My class teacher has openly admitted to having never had a trainee and changes their expectations of me daily (hourly!). I have remained professional throughout, even supplying forms and guidance in a personalised booklet to assist us both in creating a common understanding and focus. Unfortunately, I became ill. I followed procedures correctly and supplied a Dr's note (even though not required as I expected to return within days). The school responded as unwillingto continue the placement (no reason officially given as yet) and have referred back to the University. I do not want to be forced to interrupt my study. With only 6 weeks to go I am desperate for a solution to finish this year. What options are open to me? Can I request my files/ teaching are moderated early? Can I find my own alternative placement? I have teaching experience prior to the course, could this be used in any way? Thank you in advance for any replies!
