I AM confused. I was under the impression that the Post Graduate Certificate in Education and the probationary year are a slog.

The probationer whom I am supervising seems to think so. Imagine my surprise when I opened the TES on October 29 to find probationers and PGCE students having the time to review books and write their own weekly articles. Where did I go wrong?
