Hello everyone, I am thinking of the clause in my contract that says you can leave within the first 3 months of starting your contract. I started working for a school in China a couple of weeks ago but have found it an awkward fit. I just don't get on with my HOD and only foresee 2 years of misery working for this person. That is the problem of having all your interviews done via Skype - I didn't get an impression of the leadership style of the HOD. The HOD is well-established within the school so I think I am pretty isolated. I have already been told off twice in public by this HOD over some petty issues. This is an experience which I am totally unaccustomed to and find both degrading and unprofessional. It has soured my experience in a school that is otherwise very good. Instead of enduring 2 years of misery fulfilling my contract I am thinking of using the get-out clause in the contract that says you can leave giving 1 month's notice within the first 3 months. Does anyone else have experience of doing this and what can I expect from the school when they realise I want to leave? I assume they will be pretty condemning considering the money they have invested in getting me into the country etc.
