So I'm trying to figure out where I want to go career-wise, and thought it'd be useful to hear to stories of those who have moved on from teaching.
I went straight into teaching from uni, so it has been my only professional work thus far. I'm secondary trained (ESL & humanities), and have been relief teaching for a few years. I've mostly taught in high schools but have also done a little bit of relief in primary schools.
With a toddler, another child planned and a partner who runs his own business and is ALWAYS working, I don't want to get into the stress and time-commitment of full-time teaching. I'm having trouble though finding work to pursue that doesn't require significant retraining.
I know I'll likely have to go down that route, but would love to hear more from others who have already done so. Especially those who had only previously worked in education.
How did you decide what to pursue? What kind of training/study/volunteering etc. did it take to get into you new industry? How are you finding it?
Thanks in advance for any responses
