Hi . I have had time out from my (long) teaching career as I needed to stop and breathe. Nothing dramatic happened when I left my previous job, no bad feelings. Now I am ready to return and want to start applying for posts- how on earth do I get shortlisted when it looks as if I have had a gap for no good reason. It feels as if I am doomed to fail as my personal mental health will be under scrutiny. Any advice ?
