Hi everyone, After a very difficult year and a long period of sickness, I've decided to leave mainstream education. It's been a really heartbreaking decision but I'm trying to look forward. I've been informally offered a position to home-school a little boy, who due to his SEN, will not attend school. I'm really excited about this, but also somewhat nervous/apprehensive. Does anyone have experience of doing something similar? I guess I just need a little more information. I'm concerned about how this will affect my career long term, if I decide to return to teaching in schools a couple of years down the line, will it look better or worse on my CV than leaving a permanent role to teach supply? How do I go about maintaining my QTS etc.? I'd like to do this on a self-employed basis really, so looking to make this as legitimate as possible. Thank you for any help or advice you can offer!
