Like many, I have been agonising for a while however have succumbed to the realisation that teaching is not for me. I have responsibilities within the school and can mentally hack it out until the end of the year however I was wondering if anyone could advise on what happens over the summer...... ie. If I hand in my notice on time etc to finish in my position on 31st August, am I contractually not allowed to start another job until after that date? Or am I free to start a new position any time during the summer? I've searched but doesn't seem to be any info on this. Thanks!
