I am starting my pgce on Monday 19th of September and as my placement have not contacted me i thought it would be a good idea to go and meet them. From this meeting it appears that they don't seem to know how the placement works, what they're supposed to do or anything to do with the course. They said they are happy for me to observe :S but i dont want to observe... i want to learn how to teach and teach!... i'm so upset as this is the last thing i wanted. My mentor has not been replying to emails from the placement coordinator so a date has not even been set for me to start. he just seemed like he was to busy. Should i complain to my university.. iam paying for this course and want the best out of it.
