I'm an NQT teaching year 5 in Primary school. I'm going through a lot at the moment, I've been diagnosed with deopression which has caused me to be off sick for a month, I won't be back full time till after may half term. I am playing with the idea of leaving teaching as it's clearly pushed me over the edge, (although it may be the school rather than the job?) I really want to stay working in schools but not as a teacher, being a lab technician has caught my eye, I love anything to do with science and I could still work in a school (also the lantent obessive compulsive in me loves the idea of the organisation and sorting things!) However, even though my teaching specialism is Science and I have an A level in biology, I don't have a degree in science, I have a Primary Education degree. Is chasing this avenue a waste due to lack of qualifications or would it be worth a go? Thanks.
