    Depends if you can take the pay cut to take a lower paid job, or retrain really.

    Look on jobs section! Plenty of avenues IF you’re willing to take a permanent and significant pay cut.

    I'm in a good position with regards pay. To be honest teacher pay isn't that great.
    Thanks everyone for the ideas.
