Help! I have started my first ever job as a Teaching Assistant working 1:1 with a statemented child with learning and behavioural problems but it's not working out. I wasn't given the full story about the job when it was offered to me, and I (stupidly) accepted without really knowing what was in store (because I desperately wanted a route into teaching). I have tried to ask for help, but the three people involved in his learning don't agree with each other on what I should be doing. I feel like I'm letting the child down in the classroom and I can't see how I will ever be able to manage the behaviour and teach them. My confidence is at an all time low, my self esteem has vanished and it's clear to everyone that I'm failing at my job and more importantly, failing the child. I want to hand in my notice as I don't think SEN is for me, although I do still want to do teaching, I think. I feel I should resign sooner rather than later, so as not to mess the child around. I haven't received a contract yet so I don't know what the procedure is for resigning. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.
