I see more and more people posting asking about going abroad to teach as soon as they've done their NQT year...or even going abroad TO do the NQT year. Are things really so bad in the UK now that new teachers want to leave before they've 'begun?' I've been left for 14 years now and it was pretty dire then in the schools I was teaching at. Can't imagine what it must be like now to want to get out so quickly?!!
