Both are under gov so does that mean that there are both under MX scheme? Appreciate if anyone who can answer me! Thank you!

the truth is that teachers are ‘frontline uniform group workers’, similar to police, nurses etc. exception would the the HQ officers who’re still enjoying (2days?) wfh. i stand corrected.
Its really sad to see teachers mocking the idea of 'every school is a good school'. If you don't think that the kids you teach are worth teaching, then why are you in the profession? Yes, there are students with challenging backgrounds which influences their classroom behaviour, but really isn't our jobs about making a difference in their lives? What's the point of being a teacher if you just want to teach high performing students where you don't have to do much at all.

Not everyone who is burned out dealing with students who are unmotivated despite endless encouragements, wants students who are high progress. It’s just human to feel that burnout when even students with potential are burning out from commitments like cca and other non-IP things. It’s sadder when fellow educators judge others instead of supporting one another, by taking moral high ground and criticise them like how you did.

I have zero problem teaching low progress learners who are keen to make a difference to their life but still constantly fail in exam or WA. There have always been challenging family backgrounds in ANY era. But some kids these days are just waiting to be spoonfed and ready to blame their current and past teachers for their failings instead of looking inwards at how they can do better. Kids 10 years ago are more willing to reflect on themselves and push on despite setbacks.

I can teach the content, but i cannot replace their parents for taking that resilience out of them. Coming from challenging background does not equate to being challenging kids to teach. Poor learning attitude can be a combination of external factors that teachers cannot easily influence. Show me you have made that difference to 50 unmotivated kids in a year and we’ll talk.

Also would like to ask if any teachers are teaching Computing here. I have a BComp but when I check the PGDE site, Computing is not offered as a teachable subject. Yet I heard of schools offering O Level / H2 Computing

for JCs, it’s an internal deployment. they usually go for their normal subjects eg maths , physics and when they school needs they ask ard who wants to do it. i believe they then attend course.
