Hi Theo I've been considering leaving teaching seriously for a while now, but I haven't been able to find the courage to take the leap. The reason is, I have no idea what I would do next. I don't feel like I have any passions that relate to jobs, nor do I really feel like with a QTS in teaching and a 2:2 in English I have really many qualifications that would link to other jobs. I have thought I'd like to do some kind of charity office work, but when I look at the application forms, I feel totally under qualified. Every time I search the internet for jobs that a teacher can do that are not teaching, depressingly they are STILL teaching jobs-teaching children in hospitals, teaching English as a second language, tutoring etc, which to me isn't escaping teaching, it's just a transfer. Basically, I'm feeling very despondent and confused about my options and was hoping you could just turn me in the right direction, even with just an idea about what I could explore next. I'm sorry for the down and out tone of the post, but I am feeling pretty hopeless at the moment.
