    That's interesting littlejackhorner......I have been granted tier 1 but told by my union that I will not be able to work in education as TA or many other roles.......I am going to clarify. I would possibly be interested in doing lab technician work within school / college in the future.

    Definitely get in touch with teachers pensions. I found them to be very helpful although it did take about a week for them to respond. Personally I wouldn't want to do a TA job even though I could as so much is expected of TAs now. I know that doing that job would just make me ill again but a lab technician job is a completely different thing.
    I have also worked as an exam invigilator. That has to be the least stressful job I have ever done. Its obviously only a zero hour contract but it depends on how much more money you need.
    Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
