I have withdrawn my application from PGCE school direct. The deadline for free of charge withdrawal is Friday, 25th. I informed my school, do I need to come to school tomorrow? Do I have any obligations?

I have absolutely no support from my mentor, kids are fine, but I was not offered any scheme of work, this is my third week there and I haven’t seen any lesson plan, I was not introduced to parents and carers as a trainee teacher, I was only asked to slice the sheets of paper, photocopy and print documents, greet parents at the gates and work as a TA with Sen kids. I have so much stuff to do for my assignment and there was no support at all. I have to pay my own fees and I refuse to do it, but I wouldn’t even take a loan if I was eligible. To pay almost 10,000£ for this is abnormal. I will fail this course with a mentor like this, I don’t even wish to talk to ULT because this approach has put me off teaching instantly

I swear in the schools direct route it is the school that pays the fees? I thought that was how it worked? Research it and report the school if it is against the rules.

There are salaried and non-salaried routes. I applied for non-salaried, don’t ask me why, I wasn’t very experienced when I was applying. But anyway, I thought I was investing in my future, but this is absurd

Apply for civil service jobs, I have very good analytical skills. I really wanted to help a lot of kids, but I don’t want to be an ofsted robot. Just a question: is Dobby free now? The school for some reason asked me to come until Friday, I guess they need a free TA

What is Dobby? If you got nothing to do, go in for a few days. I’ve actually applied to my local school to volunteer my time to help tutor kids maths but they obviously not need on the idea. Not heard back from them in over 2 weeks.

Dobby is a house elf ) no, I will not attend the school because I am not employed, it’s weird to stay their every day for 8 hours for free, I would rather help my elderly neighbours ) my mentor is on leadership pay scale, his employed TA is on 18,000 I guess, he will help him but not me 😃

The more i think about it the more i ask myself what the point of unfunded school direct is! Lol. Total bs! You’re basically paying the school to work. Worse than slave labour! Jeezus!

Oh yes, this is shocking. In April they told me I would have been paid according to unqualified pay scale, but yesterday it turned out that they thought I was on a salaried route, that’s why they said it. Goodness, I felt like an eejit
