    Is it really as bad everyone makes out?! No, I'm only joking.

    Could you give a run through of what the first few days consisted of? How involved were you? What is you mentor like and how involved are they?

    Well my first day was an inset day for pupils as it was teacher training for the teachers and student teachers got to go along too.
    My first week was intense and I was immersed into it. I would say scitt training is for people ready to hit the ground running. As you are based in class you experience everything straight away including the good and the bad that can happen. I have been involved in teaching from day one teaching small groups. It is intense but I think if its what you want, you are like a teacher where I am anyway, involved in teacher meetings, get a sims account etc. Its good but challening, my first observation is this week already only in my second week.

    I'm due to start at the end of the month. 3 of us are starting on this course and so far I have the worst induction and intro.

    My induction consisted of receiving 2 policies and being sent to another class to observe. Even though I already spent two days doing this.

    My fellow students were both shown fire exits, given IT passwords, given 6 policies to read and invited back to set up the class.
    I offered to help set up the class and was told I wasn't needed, I also offered to come in to talk about the students capabilities and I was given a post it note with names of 2 sendco students. I'm feeling annoyed already! Any advice or am I over thinking things?
    I am quite capable of getting through this course however I don't feel my mentor really gives a damn!
