    Today I got fired from my apprenticeship 😞I was told to leave,due to many issues building up.I was in year six class and I am too friendly that's the problem,even then I wasn't allowed to 'chat'to the kids and when I did I was told to back off and I tried so hard wen tho I was told constantly.The teacher who I worked with was very stern and told me off Everytume.i was then moved to nursery.out of the blue and suddenly which I didn't take very well I felt punished and it took time for me to settle as it was a different building etc.Year six kids used to wave etc and it caused more it wasn't my fault I left and they just wanted to see me!!they fired me because of all this and now I am worried to receive this in a letter,I am worried because ive disappointed my family and I don't want them to see it,and my apprenticeship I don't even know if I'll get a new job now because how will I if I am fired 😞I don't even know what or how to react

    although this is a bad experience you have not done anything wrong like stealing etc. you should not give up on looking for something to do.

    Wow, that is really sad to hear

    You've applied to something which you clearly feel very enthusiastic and excited about but have been knocked down for being too engaging? I do question some people...

    If this is something you feel really optimistic and excited about, then this experience definately shouldn't hold you back. I'd say to maybe find an alternative route as there are always options.

    Don't give up!

    Seems to me you blurred the boundaries between doing your job and being one of the pupils. It sounds like they warned you several times. I suspect the teacher felt you were being a disruptive influence on the class and that you should follow instructions, do the tasks set by you an not make things more difficult. You were no longer a pupil. The teacher shouldnt have to ell you off. You should be grown up enough to do as requested.

    The letter is likely to be very brief.

    You should talk to the person who organises the apprenticeship about finding another placement.

    You might also want to tell your parents sooner rather than later what has happened. Choose the parent you get on best with.

    You will just need to find another apprenticeship. It can be done so dont lose hope, but learn your lesson.

    Youve been so vague? You mena you havent told the full truth and you know they deserved to fire you?

    Things happen. Just go and see the careers adviser and tell your parents before they get the letter or start asking questions. These things happen and you will get over it.

    I'm missing something? What was the apprenticeship and career? Is this part of a school placement training to be a primary school teacher?

    If you are fired and it wasn't your fault then ring up the council, tell them your story and then go after the company for damages. There's lots of cases where people are fired for no valid reason, this is called wrongful termination.

    By the sounds of it the school didnt do anything wrong.
    It sounds like the OP blurred the boundaries a bit between doing the job and being one of the pupils. It sounds like they warned the OP a few times. I suspect the teacher felt the OP was probably being a bit of a disruptive influence on the class. The OP should follow instructions, do the tasks set, and not make things more difficult. The teacher shouldnt have to tell the OP off. They should be grown up enough to do as requested.
    So i afraid you wouldnt get very far phoning the council and going for damages im afraid.

    You should not have been talking to the kids too much. This distracts them from the class work and they will not concentrate.
    Even if you want to be friendly, don't talk to them and let them concentrate on their work.

    Your job was to provide class assistance, class support and work support. Not to have cheerio conversations with the children.
