Hi, just looking for a bit of advice. I have been doing my PGDE in Primary Teaching for this past year, and was doing really well until my last placement which I have recently finished. I was in a composite P1/2 class. During this placement I really struggled for various reasons and didn't receive much support, and as a result I failed my tutor visit, despite having passed my first two placements well. This means I have to do an extra 'retrieval' placement in August/September instead of starting my probation year. Obviously I was really disappointed with this as i'd really been looking forward to starting in August with my own class, and now won't get to do this until August 2014. My confidence took a real knock during this last placement, with the negative nature of comments from my tutor and teacher, so much so that as much as I love teaching and really want to do it, i'm not sure whether or not I should go back in August for this extra placement as I don't know if i'm capable Just looking for a bit of advice, is there anyone out there who has been in a similar position? I know teaching is what I really want to do but just feel that after last placement I don't know if I can do it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
