Some may have read - i am off for stress. Probation marked unsuccessful - what happens NOW! The last straw was a observation that I had where I felt i'd had a good lesson with a difficult group and the observer giving feedback immediately after, at first making trite positive comments about a logo quiz i did then said "now to the negative aspects of your lesson, and I can tell you, it's NOT GOOD" she tore my lesson apart listing things as very serious which seemed to me not that important - She said "a girl had an incoming mobile phone call, you never saw it, she didn't answer the call but it was there" - she said there was talking during my lecture and if they are talking they can't be listening and theyre not learning anything - Now I knew there were one or two who make a passing comments to each other during, one of the kids practically has tourettes and as you go through there will be the odd comment to each other but unless it gets bad, rather than halt the flow, one carries on - I knew this group of learners and they can be bad so this day was quite good - Then the real SHOCKER She said the tutorial i gave on a highly complex piece of software and they were getting it even the less able ones, and I know because i been in industry many years, she suggested they may have done just as well if they had of opened the programme and clicked around on their own! It's this kind of comment that makes me want to quit where I'm working and quite the profession - how is this supportive? she also said they may have know what they were doing but they didn't know why they were doing it! she came in half way through! They did - anyway based upon this and other problems where I have not been supported, my probation is marked unsuccessfull - it made me physically sick and I went to doctor for this and she asked me if I had worries - and I poured out my story and she signed me off - not sure what to do - am I now dismissed? How much notice can I give to quit? (my notice period is not in my contract but in Appendix1 which i don't have) or do they need give me? will they try make me work appoint a successor and make me hand over?
