I started my PGCE (primary) in September and loved my first placement in KS1. My second placement made me utterly miserable and I did not receive the support I needed from my school trust, class teachers and mentor. In February, I made the decision to temporarily withdraw from the course and pick up from where I left off in the 2019/20 academic year. Since withdrawing, I have been doing some TA work to gain more experience. I know there’s ages to go but I feel so apprehensive about returning to the course as I didn’t receive enough support from my university or school trust. Teaching is all I’ve ever wanted to do and they made me feel like I’m not good enough, which has really hit my confidence. I thought about trying to change universities (as the uni I did my UG degree at were so supportive and I know people who’ve done the PGCE course there). Does anyone know if this is possible? If not, how can I prepare myself to go back to the course? I’m so anxious about it going wrong again! Thank you in advance.
