Thinking of Leaving Teaching?

When I began thinking of leaving teaching, I had no idea what else I could do as a job. I left teaching at Christmas 2013 and have done several jobs since then. If you’re reading this then you’re most likely thinking, “What can I do instead?”

I set up the Facebook page, Thinking of Leaving Teaching?, in 2017 to help people who have reached a crossroads in their teaching career and were thinking of leaving teaching but had no idea what to do next. The list of contents, above, includes links to useful resources including my own shared experiences of leaving teaching, and those of others, to help unhappy teachers start to think about what else they could do, and also provides information about jobs for ex-teachers and how to go about applying for them.
