Default [advice] Recruitment agency bringing me to Small claims tribunal

I found a job through the recruiter and I was hired directly with the company. I left the company less than 3 months, now the recruiter wants me to compensate 1 month salary (3k) to them. I will be attending the hearing in April. What are my chances?

The reason why I left was that the job does not suit me, i'm overly under qualified, nobody was training me as promised. The 1 month plus I was there, I was just staring into laptop trying to figure out rocket science literally. I was even questioned why i keep using the phrase "figure out" by my programming architect. Whenever I ask him for help or inputs he just shrug his shoulder. I worked with a team of Russians programmers. It could be cultural difference or they have no interest to train me. I even sourced for my own external training, cost approved by HR but my manager refuse to let me go. I feel like they are not keen to train me at all, thus my decision to leave.

Welcome constructive feedback.

The company didn't terminate the contract.

The recruitment firm didn't terminate the contract.

You terminated the contract by resigning.

Since the contract has a clause that penalises you for terminating the contract early, it really doesn't seem like you have much chance to dodge this penalty.

Having nice colleagues/supervisors or people who are willing to spend time to teach their juniors has never been part of any employment contract.

Good luck in any case.

you shouldn't have resigned but force them to fire you instead. then it wouldn't be on you to pay compensation

Will update when there is an outcome. I went for first consultation today after multiple adjournment due to covid19. Definitely feels like I have a better chance to win this case after today.

Great! just curious, what were the terms of the contract? leave within 3 months/before probation = pay penalty?

Yes something like that. Have to work for the client for at least 3 months, otherwise i have to compensate the recruiter 1 month. The fella was very persistent I pay up the 3k after the judge ask if he was willing to drop the figure. I should be able to share some good news and ways to tackle this soon.
