Hi all first post here, so thanks in advance. I've recently been signed off for my second period of work related anxiety and have come to the conclusion that I can not carry on and need a career change. My next sick note runs out in about 3 weeks and my doctor has said to try and get things resolved one way or another by then. I'm speaking to my union today about resigning and what to do about my 3 month notice period. Can I get away without working the notice? basically if I were to go back to work in this state I will be off sick again immediately and am very worried for my long term health. I can't cope with the job insecurity, increasing workload and the though of getting my students through another moderation period. Any advice would be much appreciated as I am feeling very unsure, confused and frustrated at the moment having never face a situation like this in 15 years of working.
