Not a rant, a genuine question. I didn't have to do a file of evidence for my pgce so this is the first time I've done one. I'm struggling cos I am dreadful with paperwork and have an excellent memory so don't think to write things down. I thought the point was we collected evidence to enabled our mentor to see we are meeting the standards and to help them write our report. However, my first report targets are mainly "put more evidence in your file". Apparently my mentor knows I'm meeting certain standards but I need to provide evidence. Why? If she knows I'm meeting them why does she require evidence? Isn't her word as a professional evidence? Have I completely missed the point here?
