3.f) What if things go wrong?

For a few trainees, teaching practice does not have a successful outcome. Should your trainee be one of these, you will be involved in the discussion about whether this trainee should fail their teaching practice or not. The teacher training team, and the trainee’s observer, will have evidence which you should look at. Your opinion of the trainee and his/her teaching will be evidence to be considered by the Programme Manager. It will be important at this stage that you have evidence of the trainee’s commitment and achievements so keep some notes for yourself. The Subject Mentor’s Feedback Form is where you will write some brief notes on the feedback you have given your mentee. Make sure you keep a copy for yourself.
