My computer science teacher AS teacher is awful. Shes lazy,non engaging and very inexperienced. Shes basically a supply teacher. I have decided that I need to do something about it because so far the only thing i've learnt in that lesson is how incompetent she is. I'm gonna complain to my head of sixth form but i'm not sure how to approach it. Should I give him an email or speak to him directly? How can I show him that no one in the class is actually learning anything?

You sound like a proper piece of work, child.

It might be better to do it more directly, as in ensuring you have a paper trail.
It also might be an idea to get the support of your classmates in a letter to the Head of your Sixth Form and copy to the tutor.
Keep it formal.

Maybe so, but some teachers really are like this. When I was at uni I had a lecturer who was even worse - she was recycling other lecturers' notes, not submitting assignments for the internal verification process (doubless because they were actually recycled assignments from the previous year, as old IV stamps signified), and would verbally make changes to assignments after issuing them, without putting the changes into writing or issuing updated assignment briefs.

In the end all I had to do was go to the head of department and ask if I could see her qualifications. After he railed at me about my "personality clashes", he investigated and she was gone by the end of the month.

Interesting - she sounds terrible.

You get my point though...

Shes asks us to read it
She tells us to do a powerpoint in our word about the slides

It's not a reference. I'm pretty much in the same situation as you but I'm doing GCSE. My theory teacher is terrible. All she does is read off a PowerPoint that she didn't even make.
