Is it just me who doesn't trust institutes of education anymore? I really don't. I've been let down too many times. I cannot trust them to provide teachers who actually teach. My experience being at school has been self-teaching since a child and I expected when I moved from a state school to a state selective college.. maybe the teaching standards would be slightly better but frankly theyre utter awful. I cannot trust teachers to teach me the syllabus and so I have to teach it to myself or if I really struggle I have to get myself a private tutor. It's really frustrating and I'd love to switch college but it's too late in the year tbh. So I'm stuck self-teaching myself all my subjects because of shi**y teachers. They literally just hand out worksheets. Not only that but they can't be trusted with a plan for the school year because they'll end up falling behind schedule and then we end up finishing the syllabus at the end of May. Anyone else sick of this? What are you doing about it?

I kinda feel the same. I remember at GCSE, we had a few decent teachers where I'd learn enough that I wouldn't get bored; but not too much that I'd walk out thinking I'd just been bombarded with too much information. And then there was the ones who couldn't teach. I have a friend who has a math degree. He once said I could email him and he'd explain stuff to me; but wouldn't do my work for me. Sometimes, I'd learn more from him in 15 minutes than I would from a 1 hour lesson.
I know we're expected to be a bit more independent at GCSE / A Level than years 7-9; but not to the extent where we're having to self-teach everything.
