I've never posted on here before, but am feeling very miserable and wondered if anyone could help. I am finishing my first placement tomorrow (i'm doing my PGCE over two years), and my mentor wrote my report yesterday. I have been graded as satisfactory and wondered if I should be worried. I have loved being in the class and the teaching so don't have concerns about carrying on the course (i'm changing career) but am i going to get a job if i'm only graded as satisfactory? Do prospective employers ask for your first placement grade? My mentor went away for a week during my placement so I didn't get any feedback then and I feel this really impacted my progress, also she keeps banging on about ofsted and how she doesn't think any first placement student should get above satisfactory, so i'm not sure how much chance I ever had of getting good! I suppose what i'm asking is, should I be having a stress about only getting satisfactory for my first placement or should I chill out? Thanks.
