    Hi all,

    I'm currently an NQT (MFL) approaching the halfway mark and feeling, as you'd imagine, busy as hell. It's a huge learning curve and I'm not entirely sure it's the right long-term career for me, personally. I love the teaching aspect but the other stuff, e.g. workload, not having free evenings or weekends etc are just proving to be a bit too much. That said, my feedback has been really positive and my observations have all gone well (TOUCHING WOOD!).

    That said, I've made a decision that after this year, I want to try something different within teaching. I thought about potentially approaching primary schools in my area and offering my services as (by then) a qualified teacher, to go into schools and deliver MFL lessons or EAL interventions (I have experience of working as EAL assistant).

    My question is simple - is this possible? Would it be possible to approach schools in this way and try to get a small business together?

    Just asking as I'd love your perspective on this.

    I'm MFL.
    Is there a demand in your area for this?
    If there was a demand, would the job not be advertised? Have you come straight from uni or worked in another area?
    I did 17 years of secondary teaching and got out, not because of the workload, but because I want to teach for understanding, not to tick boxes of they've included a past tense and an opinion blah blah
    I now teach a mix of ages ranging from 5 to 73. I love teaching the adults because they are learning to actually put the language to use
