I have posted on the NQT thread about trying to decide whether to stay or quit.: http://community.tes.co.uk/forums/t/589881.aspx How do I go about getting going without slamming the teahing door shut in my face? My regional union rep is useless, took ages to get back to me when I contacted him and was really short tempered with me because I wasn't clear on what I wanted. What I am looking for is any advice on what I would have to do to leave- If I do it I would need it to be sooner rather than later. It is probably not appropriate for me to stay until the end of decemeber as it is very likely that I will fail unduction at my current school.
