Hello, I’m looking for some view points. I was made redundant from work in March, due to Covid-19. My role was a highly paid and high pressure senior executive job in the airline restaurant industry. The pandemic has made me re-evaluate what is important in life, and I’m intending to finish my degree at the OU in English Lit and Language, full time and then embark on a PGCE, after which I would like to teach English at GCSE and A Level. After which I’ll be 47. I’m healthy, with bags of energy, extremely organised and have always wanted to teach, but life took me in a different direction. I’ve got teacher friends who are largely positive about the profession, and I’m not in it for the money! I want to take stable career with more meaning. I’m under no misconceptions that it will be easy, but I feel my real life experience will help. I’m based in Sussex and ideallywould like to work there- will schools employ me? I intend to do all I can whilst studying to get classroom experience to prepare me! Any thoughts?
