Hi all,
I love teaching and have been bullied at PGCE. My college would not move me, so I left. I did not want my son to see me struggling so much. I had no cause for concern, a perfect record and still want to teach.

I was in a high achieving selective school, do you think the same will happen anywhere?

I can't understand your post.

Is it possible to restart/continue your PGCE? Can you bring a complaint against the University? Someone I know did that successfully after being bullied at their first placement, and went on to complete their PGCE after the Uni accepted responsibility for the bullying.

Who was bullying you?

Do you mean in the college or on placement? Did you raise a formal complaint?

You were stupid to leave your placement.

I agree. Placements don't last for ever and you don't give any indication that you tried to resolve the issue.

I think you need to speak to your college.

Have you tried posting on the TES forums? They might be able to help you

who was bullying you?
was it other teachers? the head?

i presume you were doing block placements so you would have been there for a few weeks only.
or were you supposed to be there for a full year?

are you at college too? do you have a college tutor? can you speak to him/her?

sorry for all the questions, but hopefully someone can give you some support to complete your training.
