Six weeks into my NQT year, and I feel like every single thing I do (or don't do) is criticised by my HoD and mentor - and the worst part of this is the hypocrisy, as from what I've seen and heard much more experienced members of staff are doing these same things but are not criticised for them. I'm struggling, but no support is offered, I'm not shown how to do things, and any advice is either conflicting or too generic. The only words of praise I've received are from two colleagues who are nothing to do with my induction, so are unlikely to have passed this on formally. I've had one mentor meeting in six weeks. They expect perfection, but they don't tell me what their idea of perfection is, so how can I achieve it. At a risk of sounding paranoid, I feel like they've got it in for me.
