Hello all, I am a PGCE student with a Physics degree about to finish my course. I have passed all the stages in my course so far with my April progress report against the teaching standards being mostly 1's,2;s and 3 3's. These were Organisation, behavior management, and wider school commitment. When I asked what i can do to move to "good" on these three points I was given a list by my school mentor. One included creating an 8 lesson long scheme of work for my school to use. They said I would achieve an outstanding on "wider school commitments" if I did this. So I did. Fast forward to May for my university observation and my behavior management was very bad. The uni tutor had lots of positives on and told me what i needed to do to sort everything out. After she had left my mentor spoke to her on her way out of the school. Their discussion then raised me as a "cause for concern" over my behavior management. My assessment document did not reflect this and I was not informed this discussion would be had until it had happened. My university tutor observed another lesson 3 days later (lots of time to practice my new behavior techniques of course) and said it was an amazing lesson, even quoting my method of maths motivation in science in her session at university. I was taken off from cause for concern. This Friday I had a fairly disastrous lesson for my mentor. I was a little unprepared and the class was a lot more lively than usual. This took me by surprise and my dealing with the behavior was not good at all. However, I didn't shout at the pupils and they all completed the work to a satisfactory level in my opinion. twice during my lesson, my mentor took over from me, shouting at the class extremely loudly, and even isolating two pupils. (undermining me) I knew the lesson went badly, as did my mentor who was observing (it was his class nothing out of the ordinary). He said, "I don't know how I can pass you after that lesson" and went to speak to his boss. His boss said, "wait till Monday then we can sort something out". He did not do this. I received a call from my university tutor that night basically hinting that I should drop out and that she needs to come and observe another lesson. Under the threat: "If you don't teach a good lesson you will fail, if you do you will pass." Additional info that complicates things. The school has offered me a job starting in September. This offer was made in April. I have signed the contract. Advice needed: 1- Is this fair and normal? 2- Can I do anything about it? 3- If I pass can I resign from my post even if I pass, as it is clear the school doesn't want me. 4- If I fail what can I do about it? I will lose my house and car if I don't start my job in September as expected since April. Thank you for any advice anyone can give, I feel very used and quite frankly heartbroken.
