    I have decided to leave teaching and move into another profession, don't ask which one. Anyway, over the years I have attended a number of courses and accumulated resource booklets such as Grammar for Writing and Developing Early Writing but I don't want to just throw them in the bin. Any ideas as to what I can do with them, please?

    Send them all to Michael Gove or Justine Greening or whoever has the job now, and ask for your money back.

    I put mine on free cycle and was surprised I got requests for them

    I filled my council recycling bin with the 'Skills For Life' Literacy, Numeracy and ESOL curricular. So many folders from all manner of government education agencies.

    But I've kept my Basic Skills Agency publications because they knew what they were doing.

    There was some usable stuff in Grammar for Writing.

    We are moving house at the end of this month and OH has insisted that I get rid of school stuff-after all, I did retire 6 years ago, apart from some supply.

    On the drive, we have a skip. It is gradually filling up. I've even thrown out books!! :eek: :eek: :eek: I know, that will give some of you the vaporous, but I haven't looked at them for at least 11 years and I've not missed them, so into the skip!! I have, however, kept a box of stuff for a friend! ;)
